Dedicated to 

The descendants of Elder William Brewster whose 

interest in their family history has been an 

incentive to the production of this work 

" It is wise for us to recur to the history of our ancestors. Those who 
do not look upon themselves as a link, connecting the past with the future, 
do not perform their duty to the world." — Daniel Websteb. 

" To let the memory of these men die is injurious to posterity, hy de- 
priving them of what might contribute to promote their steadiness to their 
principles under hardships and severities." — Rev. E. Calamy, D.D. 

"Let us gather up the traditions which still exist; let us show the 
world, that if we are not called to folloio the example of our fathers, we 
are at least not insensible to the worth of their characters ; not indifferent 
to the sacrifices and trials, by which they purchased our prosperity "— 
Edward Everett.

The late Lot Edward Brewster, of Cincinnati, Ohio, a native of 
Lebanon, Connecticut, and a member of the New England Historic- 
Genealogical Society of Boston, Massachusetts, for several years col- 
lected data for a Brewster genealogy, but his work ceased in 1847 and 
was not published. After his death, in 1849, his manuscript passed 
into the keeping of another branch of the Brewster family. 

His granddaughter, the compiler of this publication, had for 
many years in her possession the original rough draft of his work — 
an outline — to which she added from time to time the data she ob- 
tained from various sources. She learned that her grandfather had 
left a later manuscript genealogy and, after years of search for it, 
she was placed in correspondence with Mr. Charles Ellis Brewster, 
of Minneapolis, Minnesota, who proved to be in possession of this 
last manuscript and who kindly presented it to her. It was evident, 
however, that while this later, but small, genealogy embodied impor- 
tant information, its publication in the condition in which Mr. L. E. 
Brewster left it would be far from satisfactory; for he had been 
unable to trace the descendants of numerous branches of the family, 
and the arrangement was not as works of this character are now 
presented. It was necessary, therefore, to edit his manuscript and 
complete and verify the records as far as possible, for which the 
compiler obtained from town clerks and others certified copies of 
the vital records relating to the early generations. 

The descendants of Elder William Brewster were invited through 
letters, circulars, notices in magazines and journals, and other me- 
diums, to furnish their family records, and printed blanks for these 
records were supplied. Although the responses were numerous, there 
are many incomplete records and possibly these partial ones are 
inaccurate, owing to the silence of those who could have contributed 
complete and correct data. 

A request was made that the authority accompany the records 
furnished, and many in the late generations are copies from church 
and probate records, Bible records, gravestone inscriptions, diaries, 
charts, family letters and papers, personal recollections of those who 
communicated the information, and published records. The compiler 


has constantly guarded against errors, although she has not hoped to 
escape them entirely nor to complete this genealogy, for that, in a 
work of this extent, is impossihle. 

The work contains the records of eleven generations of descend- 
ants of Elder William Brewster, through four of his grandsons, 
namely: Benjamin^ Brewster (son of Jonathan- Brewster), Isaac^ 
Allerton (son of Fear^ Brewster), William^ Brewster and Wrestling^ 
Brewster (sons of Love^ Brewster), approximating four thousand 
and one hundred families. Also the records (the families only), of 
nine granddaughters of Elder Brewster, which are with the families 
of the second generation. 

The greater part of the introductory material in the hrst volume 
is given in response to many inquiries and requests received from 
correspondents. This material and the biographical notes in the two 
volumes are presented as records and not as a literary effort. 

Some time after beginning this Brewster genealogy the com- 
piler learned that Mrs. Lucy Hall Greenlaw, of Boston, was pre- 
paring " Early Generations of the Brewster Family," which was 
printed later in the New England Historical and Genealogical Reg- 
ister, volume liii. The compiler acknowledges her indebtedness to 
this valuable genealogical record of the first six generations in the 
male line, for information, supplementing her own material, for 
which due credit has been given in the Eeference to Authorities in 
the following pages. 

The late Eeverend Ashbel Steele, A. M., in a footnote to page 
402 of his admirable biographic history — Chief of the Pilgrims, or 
Life and Time of William Brewster, published in 1857, declared his 
intention of publishing a genealogy of Elder Brewster's descendants. 
This genealogy, however, was never printed. In answer to inquiries 
the compiler regrets her inability to give any information as to its 
scope or completeness, as she has never seen the Eev. Mr. Steele's 
manuscript, which, she is informed, has been lost for many years. 

Those who are not familiar with genealogical research have little 
conception of the vast amount of time, labor, patience, perseverance 
and expense necessary in preparing a work of this kind. Although 
this book has cost in addition to many thousands of dollars, eleven 
years of study, labor and self-sacrifice; the writing of many thou- 
sands of letters and the receipt and careful reading of a very large 
number; months and sometimes years of waiting for answers to her 
inquiries, some of which are still unanswered; the perplexity over a 
lost link in the chain; the adjusting of conflicting dates of the same 

■^11'^ '^p^ 


event, each of which was apparently verified, and the tracing of fami- 
lies whose residences were unknown, nevertheless the compiler has 
been partially repaid by the large number of records saved, many 
of which were fast becoming obscured or lost. 

This publication, of two volumes, comprises the First Part of the 
Brewster Genealogy. For the Second Part of the same work she has 
compiled the family records of male and female descendants of nine 
granddaughters of Elder "William Brewster, having about the same 
number of families as those in this First Part At the present time the 
date of publication of the Second Part is indefinite. 

The compiler extends her grateful and heartfelt thanks both to 
the many friends who have so faithfully contributed to this work, 
and for the encouragement received from those with whom it has been 
her pleasure and privilege to correspond She also acknowledges with 
sincere thanks the kind assistance rendered by the publishers. 

Actuated by a deep interest in the Brewster family history and a 
desire to be helpful, the compiler undertook the task of collecting 
these records for preservation. With the hope that they may benefit 
those who are similarly interested, and especially the future genera- 
tions, she herewith offers the result of her labors.

The references to authorities for the first seven generations immedi- 
ately follow a family record, or a group of family records. 

The references to authorities for the eighth and following genera- 
tions are " family papers." 

" Famly papers " include one or more of the following authorities : 
Bible records, gravestone inscriptions, deeds, diaries, charts, family 
letters and papers, personal recollections of those who communicated 
the information, and published records. 

To determine the place of birth of a child in a family record where 
a hyphen connects two numbers, the children whose numbers are the 
same as the numbers having the hyphen and the intervening numbers 
were born at the same place. For example — the children of Jona- 
than^ Brewster: i-iii born at Plymouth, iv Jones Eiver, v-viii Dux- 
bury, means that his children having the numbers i through iii were 
born at Plymouth, iv at Jones River and v through viii at Duxbury. 

In a group of family records, the names of the children are in 
large and small capitals and have Eoman numerals — i, ii, etc.; the 
grand-children have Arabic numerals — 1, 2, etc., and the great grand- 
children have Arabic numerals in parentheses — (1), (2), etc. See 
family No. 22, p. 57, first child — i Ezra° Arnold, etc. 

Where a town or city is repeated in a family record the state is 
omitted, but the state is given in connection with the same town or 
city where it is first mentioned. 



The correction of the calendar made by Pope Gregory XIII., in 
March, 1582, was immediately adopted by most Roman Catholic 
countries, although not established in Great Britain and her colonies 
until 1752. From this cause arose the custom indicating the change, 
by the use of double dates between the 1st day of January and the 
25th day of March in each year. Thus, March 3rd, 1751-52, would 
be March 14th, 1752, new style. 

By the new calendar of Pope Gregory, October 5th, 1582, became 
October 15, 1582, striking out ten days, and so continued until the 
year 1700, when one more day was dropped, and from October 5th, 
1699, to October 6th, 1700, was one year. 

In 1751 the British Parliament, by Statute Law, provided that 
" the then next first day of January shall be reckoned to be the 
first day of the year 1752, and that the day following the 2nd day 
of September, 1752, shall be called the 14th day of September, omit- 
ting eleven intermediate nominal days." Old style, therefore, ceased 
in Great Britain and her colonies at the end of the day September 
2nd, 1752, and new style commenced on the morning of September 
3rd, 1752. September 3rd, old style, became September 14th, 1752, 
new style.f 

The manner of writing dates when New England was first settled 
was by numbering the months. March was the first month in the 
year and February the twelfth month. The 25th day of March being 
" Annunciation Bay," was the first day of the year, and the 24th 
day of March the last day of the year. The practice of numbering 
the months continued in some of the towns until about 1660. After 
the numbering of the months was discontinued still the year com- 
menced with the 25th day of March, and so continued until 1752.

The illustration is reproduced by request, and is a copy of a paint- 
ing of the coat of arms of the Brewster family in England, executed 
in London, England. 

An extract from " Mayflower Passengers and Coat-Armour " in 
The Mayflower Descendant, vol. ii. pp. lGO-63, is given below: 

." In 1891 Mr, William S. Appleton published a list in the New 
England Historic-Genealogical Register of ' Positive Pedigrees and 
Authorized Arms.' This has been followed by a supplementary list 
bringing the number of names up to thirty-two. Proof in each case 
was indisputable, and no claim was admitted without the most care- 
ful scrutiny. Neither in these lists, nor in a manuscript list of some 
additional settlers likely to have been armigerous, but for whose use 
of arms there was insufficient proof to justify printing their names, 
does Mr. Appleton mention any Mayflower passenger. To those who 
know the care with which Mr. Appleton's work was done, this in itself 
is sufficient proof that neither Winslow, Standish, nor their fellow 
voyagers can be considered armigers." 

In the annual report of the Committee on Heraldry, made to the 
Council of the New England Historic-Genealogical Society, Dec. 15, 
1898, and adopted by the Society at its annual meeting in 1899. as 
published in the Register, vol. liii. 399-40, it says: " Proof of right 
must either be found in the Heralds' records, or be established by 
authenticated pedigree direct from an armiger." In this report the 
Committee discourages the use of arms by Americans. 

In Morton Dexter's publication, The England and Holland of the 
Pilgrims, p. 255, he says: "A. Steele (Chief of the Pilgrims, 38) 
infers that Brewster was descended from the Brewsters of Wrentham 
because an * old copy of the same coat of arms ' is said to have been 
preserved in one tranch of the family in this country. But there 
appear to be several Brewster families in this country, and a coat of 
arms, unless supported by conclusive proof, is not satisfactory evi- 
dence. It deserves record, however, that when Brewster was cited 
before the High Court of Commission, Dec. 1, 1G07, ... he 
was described officially as 'William Bruster of Scrowbie, gen.' 
'Gen' doubtless is an abbreviation of 'generosus' i. e., well born."

(Houghton, Mifflin Co.). 



Rev. Joseph Hunter, F. S. A., in his Founders of New Plymouth, 
says : " No reasonable doubt can ever arise, that the seat and centre 
of that religious community, which afterwards planted itself on the 
shores of New England, was at this Nottinghamshire village of 

" This noted spot was the nucleus of the Pilgrim Church, and here 
was linked and riveted the solemn fellowship and unity of purpose 
and spirit, which subsisted through manifold perils until it had laid 
the foundations of a mighty empire in the distant shores of America." 

These facts make the little village worthy of more than a passing 
notice, as it seems destined to become the Mecca of all Pilgrim 

The accompanying illustration is from a recent photograph, and 
shows all that remains of the historic building, which has played such 
an important part in shaping the destiny of the New World. 

In Governor Bradford's eulogy of William Brewster in his history 
" Of Plimoih Plantation" he mentions the manor-house at Scrooby 
as follows : " They [the Pilgrims] ordinarily mett at his house on y® 
Lords day; (which was a manor of y® bishops,) and with great love 
he entertained them when they came, making provission for them to 
his great charge." 

Rev. Ashbel Steele, in The Life and Time of William Brewster, 
says : " 'Scrooby Manor,' even as far back as William the Conqueror, 
if not earlier, was a possession of the Archbishops of York, and was 
to them a place of frequent sojourn, as well as a convenient resting- 
place in their journeys. . . . Here slept Margaret, Queen of 
Scotland, daughter of Henry VII, on her way to that kingdom. Here 
Cardinal Woolsey, . . . passed weeks ' ministering many deeds 
of charity.' " 

Henry VIII, " with a gallant company," on his northern progress 
in 1541, lodged there. 

* The Scrooby notes were compiled with the kind assistance of William 
Wallace Case. Washington, D. C.

man, Mercy3 Prence, Patiencez Brewster, William^. 



Mr. Steele also says that after Elder Brewster's occupancy this his- 
toric building " was at length gradually neglected, and finally suffered 
to go to decay. One hundred years later — while the park still re- 
mained, the house had nearly fallen to the ground. In 1813 nothing 
remained marking the ancient abode of splendor and hospitality but 
some small part incorporated into a farmhouse, and in the garden 
an old mulberry tree, planted, tradition says, by the haughty Woolsey." 

Leland, the ancient historian, describes it as it was upon his visit 
in 1538; as " a great Manor Place, standing withyn a Mote, and 
[bejlongging to th archbishop of York, buildid yn to [two] Courtes, 
whereof the first is very ample, and al buildid of Tymbre, saving 
the Front of the Haule, that is of Brike, to the wich ascenditur per 
gradvs lapideos. The ynner Courte Building, as far as I markid, 
was of Tymber Building, and was not in cumpace past the 4. parte of 
the utter [outer] Courte." * 

In Morton Dexter's publication, The England and Holland of the 
Pilgrims, he quotes from the History of Nottinghamshire, by 
Thoroton, the great English historian, as follows : " Here [at 
Scrooby] within memory [i. e., of his first ed., 1G77] stood a very 
fair Palace, a far greater House of receit, and a better Seat for pro- 
vision than Southivell, and had attending to it the North Soke, con- 
sisting of very many Towns thereabouts; it hath a fair park belong- 
ing to it. Archbishop Sandes caused it to be demised to his son 
Sir Samuel Sandes, since which the House hath been demolished 
almost to the ground." 

The accompanying plan of the original manor-house and its posses- 
sions is copied, by permission, from The England and Holland of 
the Pilgrims. Mr. Dexter has visited the spot repeatedly, and, as 
recently as 1902, by permission of the late Lord Houghton, then 
lord of the manor, he made thorough examination of the premises 
including measurements and excavations. 

Eev. William Elliot Griffis, in his Brave Little Holland, speaks 
of this old farmhouse as " the palace kitchen or servants' house " 
now used as a residence, and of the cow-house he says : " Cow-houses 
are not usually raftered with carved oak, yet here under the red 
tiles and over the heads of the horses and lowing oxen are superbly 
carved beams of old oak, dark with the centuries of time-staining. 
These were once the ceiling-timbers of the refectory, or chapel, of 
the archiepiscopal palace which stood hard by. It was under these

oaken beams that the cradle of Massachusetts history began to rock. 
Here the Pilgrim Church was born." 

In Mr. Dexter's Storrj of the Pilgrims he says : " This house stands 
upon the site of the ancient manor-house. Its southern wall is very

thick, like those built in great houses three or four hundred years ago. 
There is much probability that this part of the building was included 
in the original manor-house. 

" The short wall, extending from the present house back to the 
edge of the Ryton, used to contain stones evidently once portions 
of chiselled cornices or columns, and the roof of one of the present 
cow-houses is supported by carved beams * which probably did the 
same work formerly in the hall or chapel, and must have echoed the 
voices of Brewster and his fellow Pilgrims when they organized their 
historic church and planned their escape to Holland. 

* One of tliese beams is now in the (Congregational Library in Boston.

Robinson and Clyfton, with the little company of their associates, 
praying and singing, preaching and listening, planning and organ- 
izing, conversing and breaking bread together, enjoying thoroughly 
their precious fellowship, yet ever alert lest they be suddenly inter- 
rupted and arrested. Kings and queens, cardinals and archbishops 
had met and feasted within the same walls. But none were nobler 
than the humble Pilgrims, and none have left a record in human 
history like that which Brewster and his company began to make in 
that now almost vanished edifice. 

" An important part of the present farmhouse was included in 
the manor-house where William Brewster lived." 

From the testimony of these well informed writers it is certain 
that this modest farmhouse stands on the site once occupied by the 
ancient manor-house, which was the home of Elder Brewster and 
sheltered the Pilgrim band in its first efforts to establish the Pilgrim 
Church. It has been so accepted by the Pilgrim Society of Plymouth, 
Massachusetts, as is evidenced by a tablet, which may be seen on the 
western wall of the house, bearing the inscription: 

This Tablet Erected By The Pilgrim Society of Plymouth, Mass., 
U. S. A., To Mark The Site Of The Ancient Manor-house Where Lived 

William Brewster 
From 1588 To 1008, And Where He Organized The Pilgrim Church, Of 
Which He Became Ruling Elder, And With Which, In 1G08, He Removed 
To Amsterdam, In 1609 To Leyden, And In 1620 To Plymouth, Where 
He Died 

April 10, 1644. 

As the foregoing notes are going to press the compiler is in- 
formed that a committee, representing the General Society of May- 
flower Descendants in the United States, is negotiating for the pur- 
chase of the property with the Ecclesiastical Commissioners of Eng- 
land, who hold the Scrooby Manor farm property for the Diocese 
of York, and with Captain W. H. Peake, the present lessee and 


At the time of the burial of Elder William Brewster's child m 
St. Pancras, Saturday, June 20, 1609, as recorded at Leyden, he lived 
in Stinksteeg, a short lane near the Hoogewoerds Bridge, and five 
days later he had removed to St. Ursulusteeg, {The England and 
Holland of the Pilgrims, 505-06.) " He subsequently removed to 
the Choorsteeg, as it vs^ould appear from the title page of Cartright's 
Commentaries on the Proverbs of Solomon, printed by him in 1617. 
The Choorsteeg (vicus choralis) is an alley extending from the 
Broadway to the choir of St. Peter's Church. These streets are 
obscure but eligibly situated." {Historical Magazine, iv, 4.) 

St. Peter's (Lutheran), the cathedral church of Leyden, wai« 
built in 1121. Eev. John Robinson, M. A., the pastor of the Pil- 
grim Church and the associate of Elder Brewster, was buried under 
St. Peter's Church March 4, 1625. On the outer wall there is a 
bronze tablet, erected by the National Council of the Congregational 
Churches of the United States of America, in 1891, in memory of 
Rev. John Robinson. 

" Just across the street, the KloJcsteeg, is the site of the house in 
which Robinson lived and preached, and in the garden of which a 
score of smaller dwellings were built for other members of the 
Pilgrim company." {The England and Holland of the Pilgrims.) 

The Dutch Reformed Church, at Delfs-haven, Holland, was built 
in 1416. In this church, tradition avers, the Pilgrims held farewell 
service just previous to their departure for the New World, in 1620. 
It stands at the edge of the canal, near which the Speedwell was 



As articles written without research have appeared in several jour- 
nals, expressing doubt as to the authenticity of the name " May- 
flower" applied to the first Pilgrim ship, the following extracts 
from the Plymouth Colony Records of Deeds and New England's 
Memorial are given as evidence that the vessel in which the Pil- 
grims landed at Cape Cod Harbor, November 11 (0. S.), November 
21 (N. S.), 1C20, was called "Mayflower": 

First: At the top of the fourth page of the first volume of the 
Plymouth Colony Records of Deeds is this entry, made in 1623, 
or soon after, in the handwriting of Governor William Bradford: 
" The Falles of their grounds which came first over in the May-Floure 
according as thier lotes were cast. 1623." 

Secondly: The name first appears in print in New England's 
Memorial, published in 1669, by Nathaniel Morton (who was the 
secretary of the Plymouth Colony from 1647 until his death in 1685, 
and who " had the custody of the records, and made many entries 
in this first volume of deeds"), wherein he says: "a small ship 
was bought and fitted out in Holland, of about sixty tons, called the 
Speedwell, as to serve to transport some of them over, so also to 
stay in the country, and attend upon fishing, and such other affairs 
as might be for the good and benefit of the colony when they came 
thither. Another ship was hired at London, of burthen about nine 
score, called the Mayfloiuer, and all other things got in readiness, 
so, being prepared to depart, they had a solemn day of humiliation, 
the pastor teaching a part of the day very profitably, and suitably 
to the present occasion." (pp. 22-23) ..." These things thus 
falling out it was resolved by the whole company to dismiss the lesser 
ship, and part of the company with her, and that the other part of 
the company should proceed in the bigger ship; which, when they 
had ordered matters thereunto, they made another sad parting, the 
one ship, viz., the lesser going back for London, and the other, viz.. 
The Mayflower, Mr. Jones being master, proceeding on the intended 
voyage. Tljese troubles being blown over, and now all being com- 
pact together in one ship, they put to sea again with a prosperous 
wind; . . . Thus they arrived at Cape Cod, alias Cape James, 
in November, 1620, and, being brought safe to land, they fell upon 



their knees, and blessed the God of heaven, who had brought them 
over the vast and furious ocean, and delivered them from many perils 
and miseries." (pp. 32-34), 1826 edition. 

G. Cuthbert Blaxland, M. A., in his Mayflower Essays, London, 
1896, p. 45, says : " What is the authority for the names of the two 
Pilgrim Ships of 1620? " He answers correctly as to the Speedwell 
by quoting from Morton's New England's Memorial, published in 
1669, but he makes an error in stating that the first mention of the 
Mayflower is also by Morton, as is shown by the preceding copy of 
the entry made by Governor Bradford. 

The Mayflower was chartered by the Merchant Adventurers of 
London to transport a part of the Leyden Church congregation to this 
country. She sailed from Southampton, England, August 15 (N. S.), 
and from Plymouth, England, September 16 (N". S.), and anchored 
in Cape Cod Harbor, November 21 (N. S.), 1620. 

The illustration, " The Mayflower," is a copy from a photogravure 
reduction made by the John A. Lowell Bank Note Company, from 
the oil painting, " The Mayflower," by the marine artist, Marshall 
Johnson, of Boston, from the celebrated model of the vessel made 
by Captain J. W. Collins, of Boston, by order of the United States 
Government, and now on exhibition at the National Museum, Wash- 
ington, D. C. Captain Collins was the honorary curator of naval 
architecture of the museum for many years. This is the only true 
and accepted model of the Mayflower. 


" The Compact was drawn up and signed on board the Mayflower, 
21 November, 1G20 (11 November, old style). 

" The following copy, with the introduction, is taken literally from 
Bradford's History, which does not give the names of those who 
signed the original document. 

" The earliest known list of the signers is that contained in Na- 
thaniel Morton's New England's Memorial, published in 1669. In 
the first edition of that book the names are arranged in the order 
here given, three columns of seven names each at the bottom of the 
page, and the others in three columns at the top of the next page. 
The line dividing the columns in the list appended indicates the 
bottom of the page in the ' Memorial/ "

I shall a litle returne backe, and begine with a combination made 
by them before they came ashore; being y« first foundation of their 
govermente in this place. Occasioned partly by y* discontented, 
and mutinous speeches that some of the strangers amongst them, 
had let fall from them in y® ship; That when they came ashore 
they would use their owne libertie; for none had power to comand 
them, the patente they had being for Virginia, and not for New- 
england, which belonged to another goverment with which y* Vir- 
ginia Company had nothing to doe. And partly that shuch an 
Acte by them done (this their condition considered) might be as 
firme as any patent; and in some respects more sure. 

The forme was as followeth: — 

In y° name of God Amen. We whose names are underwriten, 
the loyall subjects of our dread soveraigne lord King James, by y' 
grace of God, of great Britaine, Franc, & Ireland king, defender

John Alden was hired for a cooper, at South-Hampton wher 
.1. the ship victuled; and being a hopefull yong man was much 

desired, but left to his owue liking to go, or stay when he came 

here, but he stayed, and maryed here. 

John Allcrton, and Thomas Enlish were both hired, the later 

to goe m' of a shalop hero, and y® other was reputed as one 
.2. of y^ company, but was to go back (being a seaman) for the 

help of others behind. But they both dyed here, before the 

shipe returned. 

Ther were allso other .2. seamen hired to stay a year here in 
.2. the country, William Trevore; and one Ely. But when their 

time was out thev both returned. 


These bening aboute a hundred sowls came over in this first ship; 
and began this worke, which god of his goodnes hath hithertoo 
blesed; let his holy name have y® praise. 

And seeing it hath pleased him to give me to see .30. years com- 
pleated, since these beginings. And that the great works of his 
providence are to be observed. I have thought it not unworthy my 
paines, to take a veiw of the decreasings, & Increasings of these 
persons, and such changs as hath pased over them, & theirs, in this 
thirty years. It may be of some use to such as come after; but 
however I shall rest in my owne benefite. 

I will therefore take them in order as they lye. 

m' Carver and his wife, dyed the first year, he in y® spring, she 
in y* somer; also his man Eoger, and y^ litle boy Jasper, dyed 
before either of them, of y® commone Infection, Desire Minter, 
returned to her freind & proved not very well, and dyed in 
England. His servant boy Latham after more than .20. years 
stay in the country went into England; and from thence to 

15 the Bahamy Hands in y^ west Indees; and ther with some others 
was stavred for want of food. His maid servant maried, & 
dyed a year or tow after here in this place. His servant John 
Howland maried the doughter of John Tillie, Elizabeth, and 
they are both now living; and have .10. children now all living 
and their eldest doughter hath .4. children And ther .2. dougter, 
one, all living and other of their Children mariagable. so .15.

& though his wife dyed long before, yet she dyed aged. His 
sone Wrastle dyed a yonge man unmaried; his sone Love, lived 

.4. till this year .1650. and dyed, & left .4. children, now living. 
His doughters which came over after him, are dead but have left

againe with y® dougter of m"" Brewster, & hath one sone living

up to years, but he dyed some .15. years agoe.

ried Jacob Cooke, does not appear in the foregoing list because a 
doubt has recently been raised as to her having come in the Mayflower. 

In order to explain and harmonize certain apparent contradic- 
tions in the early records, Mr. George Ernest Bowman, secretary of 
the Massachusetts Society and editor of its official publication, The 

* From The Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants' Year Booh, 
1906, p. 7. 



Mayflower Descendant, constnicted a theor}^ which he published in 
the magazine, that the Damaris Hopkins who came in the Mayfloiver 
died young; that the same name was given, as was not then uncom- 
mon, to a sister born at Plymouth after her death, and that it was 
this second Damaris who married Jacob Cooke. 

The evidence presented in support of this theory is interesting, 
although, as Mr. Bowman himself admits, the proof is not conclusive.

" the etreete " in Plymouth was called First Street (later changed 
to Leyden Street), and originally extended from the shore to the old 
fort at the summit of what is now Burial Hill, 

The " high way " led to the Town Brook, and through it the 
Pilgrims brought water from " the very sweet brooke," into which 
the " many delicate springs " still continue to flow. 

The Pilgrims first erected a " Common House." In December, 
1G21, seven dwelling-houses had been built, besides four for the use 
of the plantation. The houses were constructed of rough hewn 
timber, with roofs of thatch and windows of oiled paper, while 
the fireplaces were made of stone laid in clay, and the chimneys 
stood outside the walls. 

The first house at the left in the illustration of Leyden Street, is 
on the site upon which the Pilgrims erected their first, or " Common 

In 1621 the fort was built as a protection from the Indians, and 
it was also used by the Pilgrims as a meeting house and place of 

Elder Brewster's house in Plymouth was at the intersection of 
" the streete " and " high way." 





In the Division of Land, in 1623, " M"^ William Brewster " was 
alloted " 6 akers." Later, he built a house in Dxixbury, near Cap- 
tain's Hill, where he lived, but died in Plymouth. 

" The first Tuesday in June was made the legal day of election of 
governor and seven assistants, ' to rule and gov- 
ern the plantation as prescribed by law.' The 
election was confined to the freemen. To be a 
freeman the individual must be ' at least 21 
years of age, of a sober and peaceable conversa- 
tion, orthodox in the fundamentals of religion 
and have a certain ratable estate.' " — Steele's 
Life of Brewster. 
" The ages of the principal men of the colony, only, are known. 
On their arrival in 1620, Carver was probably the oldest; Brewster 
was 56; Standish 36; Bradford 32; Allerton 31; Howland 28; 
Winslow 26 and Alden 21. Robinson, the Leyden pastor, was at 
this time 45 years of age." — ^Winsor's Hist, of Duxhury, p. 55. 

Elder William Brewster's afiidavit made at Leyden, June 25, 1609, 
states that he was then 42 years of age. Therefore, in 1620 he was 

in his 54th year.

" Out at the mouth of Boston Harbor, between the main ship 
channel and Broad Sound, is a group of seven picturesque rocky 
islands, called The Brewsters, and nearly two miles in length from 
north to south. Near them are many submerged rocks and ledges, 
some of which are full of peril to mariners, while others are famous 
as fishing grounds. ... 

" Scientific persons have stated that this group of sea-swept rocks 
is the debris and foundation of an ancient island, larger than any 
now in the harbor, which once occupied this area, and has been 
destroyed by the storms of immemorial ages. They received their 
name about the year 1621, in honor of the famous Elder Brewster, 
at whose home in Scrooby the primitive Pilgrim Church used to 
meet, before its flight to Holland and then to America." 

The principal islands in the group are known as Great Brewster, 
Little Brewster, Middle Brewster and Outer Brewster. The light- 
house, " Boston Light," is on Little Brewster Island. Many wrecks 
occurred on these rocky ledges in former days, and there was hot 
fighting on the islands in the Eevolutionary War. (See illus- 
trated chapter on " The Surf-Beaten Brewster Islands," in King's 
Handbook of Boston Harbor.) 

" The Town of Brewster, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, was 
incorporated 19 February, 1803, and was named in honor of Elder 
William Brewster, a large part of the inhabitants being his descend- 
ants. The town was originally the northern part of the town of 
Harwich." — Brewster, Mass., Vital Records. 

In 1810 the population of the town of Brewster was 1112, and in 
1900 it was 829. 

The majority of the descendants mentioned above are descended 
from Elder Brewster through his daughter, Patience (Brewster) 

One of the great national historic paintings, " The Embarkation of 
the Pilgrims," at Delfs-haven, Holland, July, 1620, bound via 
England to North America, painted by Robert W. Weir, was placed 
in the Rotunda of the Capitol at Washington, D. C, December 21, 
1843, by order of Congress. The scene is laid on the deck of the 
vessel. Mr. Robinson, the pastor, is m<iking the parting prayer just 
before her departure. Elder Brewster is holding the open Bible, and 
Governor Carver, Mr. Bradford and their wives form the center 
group of the picture. 


A copy of this painting, executed by Edgar Parker, of Boston, is 
in Pilgrim Hall, Plymouth, Mass. 

Another picture of " The Embarkation of the Pilgrims," forms 
one of the eight large frescos, by E. W. Cope, of famous incidents 
of English history, which line the Peers Corridor in the Houses of 
Parliament, London, England. 

In the fresco decorations of the President's Koom, in the Capitol 
at Washington, by Constantino Brumidi, Elder Brewster is painted 
as typifying " Eeligion." 

. The Brewster Chest, which traditionally, was brought in the 
Mayflower by Elder William Brewster, descended to his great, great 
grandson, Joseph** Brewster {Nathaniel*', William^, Love^, William^) 
of Duxbury, Mass., who married Jedidah White. Their daughter, 
Euth® Brewster, married Samuel Sampson, and about 1802 Mr. and 
Mrs. Sampson moved to Chester, Mass., carrying the chest with them. 
Mrs. Sampson died, and having no children Mr. Sampson went, March 
5, 1819, to live in the family of his friend, Plin Day, of Chester, 
and they executed an agreement by which Sampson gave Day the use 
of his farm during his (Sampson's) life, and Day agreed to provide 
for Sampson during his (Sampson's) life, give him proper burial 
and set a gravestone for him. Sampson died in 1822 aged 82 years, 
10 months and 2 days, and left the Brewster chest, with his other 
effects, to Day. Mr. Day sold the chest Nov. 14, 1844, to Kev. 
Thomas Robbins, of Hartford, Conn., librarian of the 'Connecticut 
Historical Society, for twenty-five dollars. Dr. Robbins making the 
purchase for the Society, and it has remained in the Society's rooms 
since that time. 

The above is from manuscript, letters and documents written at 
the time of the purchase. The statements are also confirmed by an 
affidavit made a few years ago by a daughter of Plin Day. The 
tradition of it being a Mayflower chest has come down in several 
separate lines of the Brewster family. 

Pilgrim Hall, at Plymouth, Mass., was erected in 1824, by the 
Pilgrim Society, on a site once owned by Governor Winslow, and 
later by Governor Bradford. It contains many relics of the Pilgrims 
and of early colonial times, among them Elder Brewster's Chair, a 
gallery of valuable pictures, and a library of books relating to New 
England history. 


Of the First Pilgrim Springs, at Truro, Cape Cod, Mass., Mourt's 
Relation says : 

" There we found springs of fresh water, 
Of which we were heartily glad, and sat 
Us downe and drunke our first New England water 
With as much delight as ever we drunke 
Drinke in all our lives." 

The water of the Elder Brewster Spring at Plymouth, Mass., has 
been brought to a drinking fountain, built of field stone, standing 
on the ancient land allotted to Elder Brewster and where he built 
his home, on First Street, now Leyden Street, in 1621. This foun- 
tain was erected about 1895. It is marked " The Original Elder 
Brewster Spring," and bears the quaint invitation: 

" Drink here and quench your thirst. 
From this spring. Pilgrims drank first."

On November 21st (N. S.), 1620, after a tempestuous voyage 
of nine weeks, the ship Mayflower, bearing the Pilgrim company, of 
which William Brewster was the ruling elder and spiritual leader, 
dropped anchor in the harbor of Cape Cod. Here the party remained 
for several weeks, meantime exploring the country in search of a 
suitable place for a permanent settlement. 

There had been murmurings and dissensions during the voyage 
among certain servants and mechanics, some of whom were overheard 
to say, that upon reaching land they would use their liberty as they 
desired, as the charter or patent granted to the party by the authorities 
in England was for a settlement in Virginia and not in New England. 
Hence, when the ship came to its anchorage in »Cape Cod harbor 
the whole company was called together in the cabin and there was 
drawn and signed the famous Compact — the first charter of a pure 
democracy known to man. 

The harbor of Cape Cod is now the harbor of Provincetown. Here, 
upon an eminence overlooking a great stretch of country and 
a vast waste of sea, the Cape Cod Pilgrim Memorial Association is 
erecting a lofty monument of stone to commemorate the arrival of 
the Mayflower and the writing and adoption in its cabin, by the Pil- 
grim Fathers, of the immortal compact of civil government. Doubt- 
less, it will stand for centuries, a great historic landmark and an 
object lesson to thousands of incoming immigrants of the cost and 
value of political liberty and freedom of conscience. 

The monument will be of the Italian Eenaissance order, two 
hundred and fifty feet in height, and visible for more than thirty 
miles at sea. Congress has made an appropriation of $40,000, the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts $25,000, the town of Provincetown 
$5,000, and the remainder of $100,000 (the cost of the monument), 
has been given by private subscription. Also, each of the state socie- 
ties of Mayflower Descendants has contributed a stone having an 
appropriate inscription. 

The corner-stone of this national monument was laid August 
20, 1907, with the solemn ritual of the Masonic order, by the Grand 
Lodge of Masons of Massachusetts. Honorable Curtis Guild, Jr.,

Governor of Massachusetts, spoke briefly in historic vein and intro- 
duced Theodore Eoosevelt, President of the United States, the orator 
of the day. The President delivered a striking eulogy of the Pilgrims 
and of Puritan character, and spoke with his customary vigor and 
directness upon present day matters of national importance. Besides, 
there were addresses by the British Ambassador, James Bryce, tJnited 
States Senator Henry Cabot Lodge and Congressman William C. 
Lovering of Massachusetts. There was a naval reception, and salvos 
of artillery greeted the day, the occasion and the officials, and thus an 
imposing tribute was offered to the memory of the little band, who 
once anchored their storm-tossed barque in this harbor and made 
themselves immortal. 

It is expected that the monument will be completed and dedi- 
cated in the summer of 1909. 


In the address delivered Dee. 22, 1820, by Daniel Webster, at Ply- 
mouth, Mass., in commemoration of this event, in speaking of the 
manner in which the Pilgrims left England for Holland, in a stormy 
night, from an unfrequented barren heath on the shores of Lincoln- 
shire, a part of the little band being taken into custody, while 
embarking, by mounted armed men, and the rest who had escaped, in 
danger of shipwreck, he exclaims : " What are their crimes, that 
they hide themselves in darkness? To what punishment are they 
exposed that, to avoid it, men, and women, and children, thus en- 
counter the surf of the North Sea, and the terrors of a night storm? 
What induces this armed pursuit, and this arrest of fugitives, of 
all ages and both sexes? This was not the flight of guilt, but of 
virtue. It was an humble and peaceful Keligion, flying from causeless 
oppression. It was Conscience, attempting to escape from the arbi- 
trary rule of the Stewarts. It was Eobinson and Brewster, leading 
off their little band from their native soil, at first to find shelter on 
the shore of the neighboring Continent, but ultimately to come 
hither; and, having surmounted all difficulties and braved a thou- 
sand dangers, to find here a place of refuge and of rest. Thanks 
be to God, that this spot was honoured as the Asylum of Eeligious 
liberty ! May its standard, reared here, remain here for ever ! May 
it rise up as high as Heaven till its Banner shall fan the air of both 
Continents, and wave as a glorious Ensign of peace and security 
to the Nations." 

The following are extracts from Daniel Webster's speech at the 
Pilgrim Festival, New York City, in 1850 (published 1853) : 

Gentlemen: There was, in ancient times, a ship that carried 
Jason to the acquisition of the Golden Fleece. There was a flag- 
ship at the battle of Actium which made Augustus Cresar master of 
the world. In modern times there have been flagships which have 
carried Hawke, and Howe, and Nelson of the other continent, and 
Hall, and Decatur, and Stewart of this, to triumph. What are 
they all, in the chance of remembrance among men, to that little

bark, the Mayflower, which reached these shores in 1620 ? Yes, 
brethren, that Mayflower was a flower destined to be of perpetual 
bloom ! Its verdure will stand the sultry blasts of summer and the 
chilling winds of autumn. It will defy winter. It will defy all 
climate and all time, and will continue to spread its petals to the 
world, and to exhale an everlasting odor and fragrance to the last 
syllable of recorded time. ... 

Gentlemen, brethren of New England! whom I have come some 
hundreds of miles to meet this night, let me present to you one of 
the most distinguished of those personages who came hither on the 
deck of the Mayflower. Let me fancy that I now see Elder William 
Brewster entering the door at the further end of this hall; a tall 
erect figure, of plain dress, with a respectful bow, mild and cheerful, 
but of no merriment that reaches beyond a smile. Let me suppose 
that his image stood now before us, or that it was looking in upon 
this assembly. ' Are ye,' he would say, with a voice of exultation, 
and yet softened with melancholy, ' are ye our children ? Does this 
scene of refinement, of elegance, of riches, of luxury, does all this 
come from our labors? Is this magnificent city, the like of which 
we never saw nor heard of on either continent, is this but an offshoot 
from Plymouth Eock? 

" Quis jam locus .... 
Quae regio in terris nostri non plena laboris? " 
Is this one part of the great reward for which my brethren and 
myself endured lives of toil and of hardship? "We had faith and 
hope. God granted us the spirit to look forward, and we did look 
forward. But this scene we never anticipated. Our hopes were on 
another life. Of earthly gratifications we tasted little; for human 
honors we had little expectation. Our bones lie on the hill in Ply- 
mouth churchyard, obscure, unmarked, secreted, to preserve our 
graves from the knowledge of savage foes. No stone tells where we 
lie. And yet, let me say to you who are our descendants, who possess 
this glorious country and all it contains, who enjoy this hour of 
prosperity and the thousand blessings showered upon it by the God 
of your fathers, we envy you not, we reproach you not. Be rich, be 
prosperous, be enlightened. Live in pleasure, if such be your allot- 
ment on earth; but live, also, always to God and to duty. Spread 
yourselves and your children over the continent, accomplish the whole 
of your great destiny, and if it be that through the whole you carry 
Puritan hearts with you, if you still cherish an undying love of civil 
and religious liberty, and mean to enjoy them yourselves, and are 



willing to shed your heart's blood to transmit them to your posterity, 
then will you be worthy descendants of Allerton and Bradford, and 
the rest of those who landed from stormy seas on the Rock of 


By Hon. Lyman Denison Brewster * 

The story of the Mayflower and Plymouth Rock is the story of the 
formation of a little Separatist or Congregational Church at Scrooby, 
England, its escape to Holland, its migration from thence to Ply- 
mouth, and its establishment there as the first embodiment in America 
of freedom in the Church and equality in the State. 

William Brewster cradled the church at Scrooby, in his own home. 
He devoted his means to the support of its ministers and the succor 
of its members. After suffering fine and imprisonment and risking 
his life for this heresy, he helped the little flock to Holland, where 
his duty as elder intrusted him especially with the discipline and 
building up of the Church and the preservation therein of soundness 
of doctrine. This duty he successfully performed with great gentle- 
ness and equal firmness. While in Ley den his arrest was sought 
for publishing Protestant books for circulation in England and 

He was in every respect the co-equal and colleague with Robinson 
in all the measures for preparing the voyage to America, and shares 
with Carver and Cushman the honor of procuring the requisite London 

That he drafted the Compact of November 21, 1620, in the cabin 
of the Mayflower seems almost certain. That he was the moral, 
religious and spiritual leader of the Colony during its first years 
of peril and struggle and its chief civil adviser and trusted guide 
until the time of his death is quite certain. But for his ecclesiastical 
position he would have been Governor of the Colony. 

So that, while it was perhaps unfortunate, as a matter of good 

* An Address Delivered before the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower 
Descendants, 13 February, 1902, at Boston. 

The late Judge Lyman D.s Brewster (DanielT, Daniel^, JoJin^, Daniel*, 
Benjamin^, Jonathan^, William^) was deeply interested in the work on 
this genealogy and had expressed a wish that he might select the writer 
of a biographical sketch of Elder William Brewster for this book, but as 
his illness followed by death prevented the carrying out of his wish, the 
paper written by Judge Brewster himself, and published in The Mayflower 
Descendant, vol. iv. pp. 100-109, is reprinted in memory of him. 



taste, that Eev. Ashbel Steele entitled his valuable biography " Chief 
of the Pilgrims : or The Life and Time of William Brewster " — 
unfortunate, since the modest Elder of Plymouth was the last man 
in the world to institute comparisons with his brethren, it is never- 
theless true as a matter of history that he was indeed in the fullest 
sense " The Chief of the Pilgrims." And it is also true that having 
the rare felicity to be both the founder of the first free Church in 
America and also the founder of the first free colony in America, he 
was in a sense in which no other man, not even Eoger Williams (as 
I shall show) can claim the honor — the first Apostle of both civil 
and religious liberty on this continent. 

In the light of recent research he stands out more clearly than 
ever, the leading figure of the Mayflower and of Plymouth : In 
the prime of his intellectual vigor, in the 54th 3'ear of his age, the 
only reason why the Elder was not chosen the first Governor of the 
Plymouth Colony, says Hutchinson in his History, was that " He 
was their ruling elder, which seems to have been the bar to his being 
their Governor — civil and ecclesiastical office, in the same person, 
being then deemed incompatible." Perhaps an equally cogent reason 
was that an outlawed exile would hardly be " persona grata " to the 
officers of the Crown. 

Some subsequent historians, not realizing that, as Judge Baylies 
says, " the power of the church was then superior to the civil power," 
or the true reason of the apparent but not real subordination of the 
Elder to the Governors (Carver and Bradford), have failed to give 
to the heroic Elder the supremacy he deserves over each and all, 
as the heart, brain and soul of the new Plymouth enterprise, without 
whom it could hardly have been attempted, with whom it became the 
most memorable and successful pioneer colonization on the American 
continent after its discovery by Columbus. 

Let me mention some of the admirable qualities of his leadership. 
N'ot intending in the least to suggest a word in derogation or depre- 
ciation of the good qualities, nay the grand qualities of those superb 
fellow Pilgrims, Bradford, Winslow, Carver and Standish, I will 
state briefly what he was, what he accomplished. 

Of gentle birth, educated at Cambridge, a courtier before he was 
twenty years of age, in high esteem with Her Majesty's Secretarv of 
State, treated by him more like a son than a servant, soon a member 
of the English Embassy to Holland, after loyally and faithfully 
serving his patron Davison who was deposed from his high position 


by the perfidy of the Queen, he, after suffering years of persecution 
in building up the Mayflower church at Scrooby, left his native land, 
his position and his fortune, to be an exile in Holland and a pilgrim 
in America. 

A word each on his scholarship, his statesmanship, his saintliness 
and his standing among the Founders of States. 

First, as to his scholarship and ability as a lay preacher. It was 
always known that he was a trained scholar of the greatest of English 
Universities, but it remained for the late Dr. Dexter to show the 
depth and breadth, the fullness and ripeness of his learning and 
wisdom. Dr. Dexter wrote to me that he regarded him as the ablest 
man of the first generation of New England colonists, and no man 
was better qualified to give that judgment. While a persecuted 
refugee in Leyden he published and in some instances himself printed 
and edited both popular and erudite theological treatises in Latin 
and English. While living in his log house in Plymouth, built by 
his own hands, he yearly received supplies of newly published books 
in Latin and English, and his library was inventoried at his death 
in 1644 at four hundred volumes. 

Dr. Dexter took the brief headings of the inventory deciphered 
by Mr. Winsor and tracing out the books through the leading libraries 
of England and Europe, restored the full titles. Sixty-two were in 
Latin and ninety-eight commentaries on or translations of the Bible. 
Dr. Dexter says: 

" It is my strong impression that it is very doubtful whether, for 
its first quarter-century, ISTew England anywhere else had so rich a 
collection of exegetical literature as this." 

With such a scholar to explain the Scriptures, which was the 
chief function of the pulpit in those days, it is no wonder that when 
a minister who came over in 1629 was chosen to be the Plymouth 
pastor, the people " finding him to be a man of low gifts and parts, 
they, as providence gave opportunity, improved others as his as- 
sistants." And this scholar worked with his own hands to build 
his house in Plymouth, and afterwards in Duxbury, and up to the 
age of nearly eighty helped to cultivate his own farm. And there 
is nothing to show, says one biographer, in the records that he ever 
asked for or received any salary. 

But the crowning glory of this wealth of learning and knowledge 
was this. For thirty years it was devoted constantly, utterly and 
superbly to the people with whom he had cast his hazardous lot. 
All he could learn he freely imparted to those he taught. 


He was a scholar and preacher from the people, with the people, 
for the people and to the people, and in their close companionship 
of toil and danger the people did indeed hear him gladly. Of their 
place of worship and order of assembling De Easiere, a wise observer 
from Holland in 1627 gives this often repeated but always interesting 
sketch : 

He says : " Upon the hill they had a large square house, with 
a flat roof, made of thick sawn planks, stayed with oak beams, upon 
the top of which they have six cannons, which shoot iron balls 
of four and five pounds, and command the surrounding country. 
The lower part they use for their church, where they preach on 
Sundays, and the usual holidays. They assemble by beat of drum, 
each with his musket or firelock, in front of the captain's door; they 
have their cloaks on, and place themselves in order, three abreast, 
and are led by a sergeant without beat of drum. Behind comes 
the Governor, in a long robe; beside him on the right hand comes 
the preacher with his cloak on, and on the left hand the captain with 
his side-arms and cloak on, and with a small cane in his hand; and 
so they march in good order, and each sets his arms down near 
him. Thus they enter their place of worship, constantly on their 
guard night and day." 

How much Governor Bradford, the excellent governor of the 
colony for over thirty years, owed not only to the guidance, but to 
the training, teaching and companionship of his old neighbor, com- 
rade and life-long friend, his grateful words bear full witness. He 
says of Brewster that " he was foremost in our adventure in England 
and in Holland and here." John Brown of Bedford calls him " The 
Great Heart of their pilgrimage." Dr. GrifiBs says " from the first 
Brewster was the soul of the Plymouth colony." 

The devout Elder was regarded with the utmost veneration and 
reverence in his later years by the colonists of the eight towns into 
which the little settlement of 1620 had grown. Hence I think the 
popular impression of the old patriarch pictures him vsdth the austere 
severity and rigid narrowness of an old iron-sides, rather than with 
the " sweetness and light " of Hampden and Milton. Nothing could 
be further from the truth. Humblest and gentlest of men, his 
flock almost worshipped him because they loved him and had reason 
to love him, while that love was returned in full measure, and the 
chronicle says of his death in which he " so sweetly departed this 
life unto a better " : " We did all grievously mourn his loss as that 
of a dear and loving friend." 


Of his personal qualities Bradford says : " He was wise and dis- 
creet and well spoken, having a grave and deliberate utterance, of 
a very cheerful spirit, very sociable and pleasant amongst his friends, 
of an humble and modest mind, of a peaceable disposition, under- 
valuing himself and his own abilities, and sometimes overvaluing 
others; inoffensive and innocent in his life and conversation, which 
gained him the love of those without, as well as those vsdthin. , . . 
He was tender-hearted and compassionate of such as were in misery, 
but especially of such as had been of good estate and rank, and 
were fallen unto want and poverty, either for goodness and religion's 
sake, or by the injury and oppression of others. ... In teach- 
ing, he was moving and stirring of affections, also very plain and 
distinct in what he taught . . . He had a singular good gift in 
prayer, both public and private. . . . He always thought it were 
better for ministers to pray oftener, and divide their prayers, than 
be long and tedious in the same." 

" He taught twice every Sabbath, and that both powerfully and 
profitably, to the great contentment of his hearers, and their com- 
fortable edificati(5n ; yea, many were brought to God by his ministrie. 
He did more in this behalf in a year, than many that have their hun- 
dreds a year do in all their lives." Bradford's whole eulogy of his 
beloved friend and pastor is the most pathetic and beautiful passage 
in his History of jSTew Plymouth so lately restored to the State of 

Next as a statesman. If the acorn is judged by the oak it produces, 
he had no superior in that age of great statesmen. How far-reaching 
the policy that foresaw that the refugees must leave Holland, if 
they would preserve their English morals with their English freedom ! 
How tersely in the short Social Compact which we believe he penned, 
impromptu apparently, in the cabin of the Mayflower is the whole 
genius of " Liberty, Equality and Fraternity " put in a few lines ! 
Well has it been called the " germ of all our American Constitutions 
and Declarations of Eight " — " Magna Charta reinforced by the 
spirit of the Dutch Commonwealth." 

Professor Goldwin Smith in his brilliant little book called " The 
United States Political History 1492-1871 " tells us that the recital, 
in the Compact signed on the Mayflower, of the colonists' allegiance 
and fealty to King James was a great and serious mistake and 
" created a relation false from the beginning," that in it " lay the 
fatal seeds of misunderstanding," etc. On the contrary the mistake 
is all on the side of the Professor. Not to have acknowledged that 


fealty and allegiance would have been false, and if interpreted as 
seriously intended would have been suicidal. It was because they 
intended to be English colonists and English freemen that they left 
Holland. In all the business of procuring their charter that fealty 
is assumed and this allegiance and fealty is reiterated and reaflirmed 
in the Plymouth Code of 1636, of whose drafters the Elder was one. 

How superior the wise, peaceful, just and courageous policy of 
the Plymouth Colony in its treatment of the Indians and its fellow 
colonies! And the man who always had the last word in these im- 
portant matters — the Joshua and Nestor of the plantation was Elder 
William Brewster, Here again see the crowning glory of his success 
as a political philosopher. He put his glorious theory of Equality 
and Fraternity into practice, and Liberty could not help being the 
result. The first Plymouth town meeting of equal citizens with equal 
rights had it in the seeds of Yorktown and Gettysburg. It was the 
first clear prophecy of the Eepublic which was to extend from ocean 
to ocean. 

Dr. Gregory of Edinburgh in his recent work on Puritanism, cool 
and judicial Scotchman as he is, sums up the consensus of historians 
when he says " It is not too much to say that in a very real and 
profound sense the Mayflower carried with her the destinies of the 
world. Her crew (evidently the doctor means her passengers) were 
not only the pioneers of civil and religious liberty, they were the 
heralds of a faith which tested by the heroic men it has formed 
and heroic actions it has produced may indeed challenge comparison 
with any faith by which men have been moulded and inspired. The 
struggle they were called upon to wage was a struggle for liberty 
not only in the New World but in the old, and but for the planting 
of Puritanism in New England the victory of Puritanism in the 
Mother Country would have been short-lived, and shorn of its most 
characteristic features and products." And in spite of all criticism 
Bancroft states but a fact when he says that " in the cabin of the 
Mayflower humanity recovered its rights and instituted government 
on the basis of equal laws for the general good." 

Dr. Gregory in summing up the influence of the Mayflower and 
Plymouth Eock, wisely and justly, it seems to me, merges and blends 
the Pilgrim Separatist and the Massachusetts colony Puritans as 
exerting essentially the same influence after 1630 on subsequent his- 
tory, since all the Puritans of New England soon became Separatists. 

Better than all, he was a saint in a church where saint worship 
was abolished. Of his own sincere, devout, spiritual, religious faith 


and practice every day of his exiled life bore witness. But what 
especially distinguished him as a religious leader in those days was 
his breadth, toleration and charity. When that sturdy and heroic 
heretic Eoger Williams in Plymouth denounced the Mother Church 
in England as Anti-Christ, pronouncing it sinful to attend its wor- 
ship or to fellowship with it, the more charitable Leader of the 
Pilgrims refused to go with him or to hold to any such nonsense. 
In fact the spiritual descendants of William Brewster and John 
Robinson were not more Jonathan Edwards and the New England 
Calvinists than Phillips Brooks, Horace Bushnell, Henry Ward 
Beecher and Charles Briggs. " The Pilgrims were neither Puritans 
nor Persecutors " was the motto I saw some years ago written over 
the spot across the street from which Elder William built his house. 
But in reality the Pilgrim was, as Dr. Dexter says, " The Puritan 
in the superlative degree." 

John Robinson and Roger Williams are justly praised as the 
fathers and apostles of religious toleration in their age. But William 
Brewster was more catholic and tolerant than either, at an earlier 

" Paget " according to Powicke in his recent Life of Henry Bar- 
rows " says that Robinson had ' tolerated ' his fellow elder ' for 
this long time ' in this practice " and " this practice " was the custom 
of hearing ministers of the Church of England, and it is a touching 
evidence of the Elder's influence on the life and belief of his beloved 
pastor that there was found in the study of John Robinson after his de- 
cease a treatise on " The Lawfulness of Hearing of the Ministers of the 
Church of England." We have already seen how on this very point 
the Elder of Plymouth was more tolerant than Roger Williams in 
the new colony. The sturdy leader who surpassed both John Rob- 
inson and Roger Williams in true catholicity and toleration before 
1620 may well stand for the Pioneer of Religious Liberty in New 
England and America. 

The claim that the Elder was in the slightest degree blameworthy 
in advising the Plymouth Church to accept Roger Williams' petition 
for a dismissal from that church to the church in Salem will hardly 
pass muster with any student of history thoroughly conversant with 
the " chip on the shoulder " characteristics of the great Founder 
of Rhode Island, or who has thoughtfully read Bradford's words of 
tender regret at the parting — words which undoubtedly echoed the 
sentiments of the Elder. 

It seems to me that Dr. Gregory's criticism of the unstinted lauda- 


tion of the intrepid Baptist by Mr. Strauss when he puts him on a 
level with Luther and Cromwell is fully justified. There seems to 
be a lack of historical perspective. 

Easily first among the Pilgrims (for Eobinson the master mind 
of all was not a Pilgrim as he stayed on the other side of the seas 
and is out of the comparison), how does the scholar, teacher and 
sainted father of the first colony of New England stand among the 
founders of States? Lord Bacon puts the founders of States in the 
first rank of the Great Men of the world. It seems to me that de- 
pends on the motive, and method of their achievements. Where con- 
quest and greed are the motives, and treachery and bloodshed the 
methods, I see nothing to admire or respect. But what colony was 
ever founded on loftier aims, with more devoted sacrifice and by 
more honorable methods than that which was started in position 
at Plymouth two hundred and eighty two years ago. Its free spirit 
has taken possession of the continent. The man whose thought 
originated, whose spirit pervaded, whose presence stimulated, whose 
counsels preserved that colony in its infancy can well bear comparison 
with any of the famous colonizers of the continent. 

It was no accident that made William Brewster the planter of a 
great church, and pioneer of a great state. The long schooling in Hol- 
land after the sharp persecution in England seems to have educated the 
Pilgrims and their great leader to a more gracious spirit, a more 
Christian sense of the relations of man to man than was possessed 
by the subsequent New England colonists. There was less bigotry, 
no persecution and little of the superstition and narrowness that 
darkened the history of most of the other New England colonies. 
The bond that kept together that immortal band through flood and 
famine, pestilence and peril, was not commercial or primarily po- 
litical. It was religious and spiritual. It was faith in God and 
the Gospel of the Christ. And their spiritual leader full of that 
faith himself, inspired his flock with his own zeal and moulded the 
colony not only during his own life but for a whole generation after. 
The very symmetry and perfection of William Brewster's character, 
have in a sense prevented a full and just recognition of his services 
to church and state. 

But to my mind the entire sanity, moderation, self-restraint, the 
grand common-sense of the founder of Plymouth constitutes one of 
his most attractive characteristics. Too often, alas, have the re- 
formers of the world, the founders of states and systems, had the one- 


sided vehemence of a John the Baptist instead of sharing something 
in the serene dignity and repose of the Master. Patience, humility, 
indomitable fortitude, unquenchable hope, purity of life and purpose, 
kindliness of heart, sympathy for the weak and poor, fidelity to the 
death for all that is right, absolute abhorrence for all that is wrong, 
are they not worthy human qualities although their possessors for- 
sooth be termed Puritans? But these Pilgrims although Puritans 
of the Puritans in their moral steadfastness, were also free in a 
large degree from the narrowness, intolerance and vulgarity that have 
elsewhere sometimes characterized those who held the name. How 
much of this freedom must we fairly attribute to their leader and 
teacher? See the effectiveness as well as the quality of his work! 
In England he not only made of his home a meeting house, but he 
provided its pastors and devoted his means and his life to his brethren 
who sought to reform what he and they believed the unscriptural 
practices of the Church established by law. When the little flock 
liad gathered again after their hazardous flight to Holland, not only 
did his printing press at Leyden furnish to Scotland and England 
exactly the English Protestant literature which the Eeformation most 
needed, but his wise eldership contributed no less than the genius 
of Eobinson to preserve and shape a church worthy of being the 
pioneer church of New England. 

In Plymouth — elder, advisor, Nestor of the little band. Dr. Dexter 
tells us there is every reason to believe the English books of his library 
were openly accessible to all and formed in reality the first Public 
Library of New England. A preacher who never had been a priest, 
a pastor who had never been an ordained clergyman, he was the 
fitting leader of a band of Independents who were to found a Church 
without a Bishop as well as a State without a King. Opposed to 
all ritualism and formalism, to any ceremonials not in their opinion 
plainly enjoined by the word of God, the Plymouth Colony, under 
the Elder's wise and able guidance preserved a moderation, sanity 
and freedom from extravagance and superstition not always prevalent 
in the other Puritan Colonies. 

There have been many saints in Old England and in New Eng- 
land well beloved we may believe of God and man, but how many 
of his energy and of such influence on the future, who were so 
free from asceticism, fanaticism, ignorance and supersition? How 
many unembittered by such persecution, unnarrowed by such isola- 
tion ? This " Chief of the Pilgrims " was a Puritan of the Puritans 
in all that makes puritanism a power for good, for purity, for piety. 



for valor, and a terror to evil doers, but in nothing else. The sour- 
ness, the barrenness, the vulgarities of puritanisni seemed left out 
of Elder Brewster's composition. 

And it is a pleasant thought, I am sure, for every member of our 
society to realize that the more the records are searched, the more 
clearly it appears that the spiritual leader of our Pilgrim Ancestors 
— the transplanter of the first New England Meeting House, the 
suggester of the first New England town meeting, was in everything 
throughout his life, in everything we know of his thought and action, 
a noble Christian gentleman. 


The first formal military organization, distinct from the civil 
government, was formed February 27, (17 0. S.), 1621, Myles 
Standish being chosen captain, with full authority as commandant. 
(Prince's Annals, February, 1621; Palfrey's History of New Eng- 
land, i. p. 176; Goodwin's Pilgrim Republic, p. 115.) 

This organization included " all those able to bear arms." Elder 
Brewster was a vigorous man of 54 years at the time of the Landing. 
He was not only a member of this military organization but he 
must have acted also as its chaplain. 

Elder Brewster " was in no way unwilling to take his part and 
bear his burden with the rest." (Bradford's History of Plymouth 
Plantation, p. 413, ed. of 1856.) 

" He partook with them of labor, hunger, and watching ; his bible 
and arms being equally familiar to him; and he was always ready 
for any duty or suffering to which he was called." (Thatcher's 
History of Plymouth, p. 293.) 

" He was able to use his armor as well as his bible." (Steele's 
Life of Brewster, p. 234.) 

After one-half of the colonists had died in the " first sickness," 
in 1621, " Standish had under him twenty men. Imagine them 
drawn up in two ranks. In the first rank are seen Governor Brad- 
ford and Elder Brewster. The good Elder fights as he prays, and, 
though he would far rather convert an enemy than hurt him, he would 
not dream of allowing him the first fire." (Goodwin's Pilgrim. 
Repuhlic, p. ISO.) 

" If Elder Brewster prayed for protection against enemies, he 
took good care that his gun was ready and his sword sharp, so 
that he might do his part toward securing the blessing asked." 
(Goodwin's Pilgrim Eepudlic, p. 110.) 

Elder Brewster's two swords, his pistol, dagger and armor — ^head 
piece and corselet, " Costlett " — are mentioned in the inventory taken 
after his death. One of his swords was presented to the Massachu-

tlement of his estate, " Jonathan, as the first born, was given his 
father's arms." (Pilgrim Republic, pp. 431-32.) [See Elder Brews- 
ter's Inventory and the Settlement of his Estate.] 

The General Eegister of the Society of Colonial Wars, 1899-1902, 
p. 576, states that Elder Brewster was " member and chaplain of the 
first military company under Captain Myles Standish and served 

asfainst the Indians.' 


" Elder William Brewster died at Plymouth, 10 April 1644, without 
having made a will, and on 5 June, 1644, his " onely two sonnes 
surviveing," Jonathan and Love, were appointed administrators of 
his estate. All records concerning the settlement of the estate are

[Plymouth Colony Deeds, I: 198] 

Bradford Gov"^ 
Whereas William Brewster late of Plym gent deceased left onely 
two sonnes surviveing viz* Jonathan the Eldest and Love the yeonger 
And whereas the said William dyed intestate for ought can to this 
day appeare The said Jonathan and Love his sonnes when they 
returned from the buriall of their father to the house of M"" Willm 
Bradford of Plymouth in the p'^sence of m"" Eaph Partrich Pastor of 
Duxhorrow m' John Reynor Teacher of the Church at Plymouth and 
m"" Edward Buckley Pastor of the Church at Ma(rsh) feild and many 
others being exhorted to honor their Rev'"end father w*'' a peaceable 
pceeding about the division of his estate between them. The said 
Jonathan first answered for his part that although hee were the elder 
yet was willing to devide lands and goods equally betweene himself 
and brother. And if in case any differrence should arrise betweene 
them that it might be soone suppressed said he heere are four of my 
fathers deere and auncient frends viz*^ m"" Willm Bradford then 
Gov'"nor of Plymouth m' Edward Winslow of Marshfeild m' Thomas 
Prence of Plymouth aforesaid and Captaine Miles Standish of Dux- 
borrow. And if my brother please to accept my motion whereinsoev' 
we shall differ we will stand to their award w'^^ shalbe as firme 
as if it had beene done by our father &c To all w'^'* the said 
Love Brewster condiscended to the greate satisfaccion of the whole 
Assembly the said freinds of his father being there also p'"sent 
who willingly engaged themselves therein to the utmost of their 
power And whereas afterward differrence arose betweene the said 
brethren Jonathan and Love in divers prticulers about the late 
dwelling house of their said father at Duxhorrow wherein the said 
Love dwelt and had donn from his marriage to that instant also 
about certain accompt wherein Jonathan was made debtor to the 
estate in a large sume &c Hereupon according to prmise they 


referring themselves to the said speciall and most intimate frends 
of their said father the said Edward Winslow afterwards Gov''nor 
of Plymouth m"" Willm Bradford m"" Thomas Prence and Captaine 
Miles Standish aforesaid haveing heard divers thinges alleadged 
on Loves behalf to prove that the said House and half the Lands 
of the said Willm belonging thereunto aswell as any other the 
lands of the said Willm devided or to be devided w'** an entire half 
part of the estate of the said Willm was given to the said Love 
and Sarah his wyfe upon a Covenant of Contract of marryage to be 
due at the death of the said Willm Brewster now deceased. All w'='" 
was offerred to be prooved legally if neede require by solemne prmise 
though not in writing The said Jonath(an) also off erring to take 
off upon oath the greatest prt of the said debts also &c The said 
Edwa(rd) Winslow Willm Bradford Thomas Prence & Captaine 
Miles Standish being well acquainted w**^ their said case aswell by 
divers thinges heard from their rev'"end father in his life as by the 
evedence now offerred to be prduced on both sides determyned as 
followeth And first of all for the said debts w'^*' were alleadged against 
the said Jonathan the elder brother by the said Love the yonger as 
aforesaid we conceive that if their father had not acquitted them 
before his death yet bee would nev"" have charged his Eldest sonn 
w^'^ them in regard of his greate charge of children and so beleeveing 
it was donn actually or intentively or both we discharged Jonathan 
of all the said debt his brother made him debtor to the estate afore- 
said except foure pounds sterling w'^'* wee award him to pay his 
brother Love in consideracon of the wintering of some cattell w^** 
the said Jonathan had the sommering upon the division and for 
the dyett of Isaack Allerton a grandchild of the said Willm w^** 
he had placed w'^ his sonn Love to table And because bee was 
the first borne of his father we gave him his fathers Armes and 
also a two yeare old heiffer over and above his part of the devideables 
of the said estate. And for the Dwelling house aforesaid of the 
said Willm wherein the said Love Brewster resided we were so well 
acquainted w*** the purpose of the s^ Willm now deceased and the 
evidence offerred for proofe seemed to us so strong as we beleeveing 
the said Willm had actually or intentively or both given the said 
house to his sonn Love and Sarah his wyfe and their heires &c Wee 
the Edward William Thomas and Myles awarded the said dwelling 
house to the said Love and Sarah his wyfe and their heires &c to- 
gether w*'' half the said Estate of Lands goods and cattells except 
before excepted and aswell such other lands as are not yet divided

of New Plymouth aforesaid as that at Duxborrow whereon hee lived 
And whereas some differrence might have arrisen about the division 
of the said Lands at Duxborrow m"" Willm Vassell being requested 
to survey the said Lands he made a division of y* in two parts being 
an hundred & eleaven acrees of upland or there abouts viz*^ to Jona-

of the said Jonathan and prt in a Swamp adjoyneing wherein onely

" The Brewster Book " is a very old manuscript containing records 
relating to Elder William Brewster, his wife Mary, son Jonathan, his 
•wife Lucretia, the children of the latter and many of Jonathan^ 
Brewster's descendants of the early generations. The book is now 
at the rooms of the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants 
at Boston. 

The following are extracts from a description of the book in The 
Mayflower Descendant, vol. i. pp. 1-8 : 

" The first sixty pages contain copies of a commission to Capt. 
John Mason, and of a license to Thomas Weston; an abstract of 
the patent of November, 1620; directions for transporting passengers 
to New England; lists of articles necessary for fitting out a fishing 
vessel, with the cost of the various items; and extracts from letters 
sent from New England and from Jamestown, Va. One of these 
letters was sent back in the Fortune in Dec, 1621, and the fact that 
all are said to be ' from ' New England and Virginia is evidence that 
the copies were made while the book was still in England. Con- 
sequently it could not have come in the Mayflower. None of the 
handwriting has been identified as that of Elder William Brewster, 
but there are entries which seem to prove that at the time of his 
death the book was a part of his estate. On the fifth of June, 1644, 
the General Court appointed Jonathan and Love Brewster adminis- 
trators of their father's estate, and on the eighteenth of the same 
month Jonathan sold to John Bemon a number of books which had 
been a part of the Elder's library. This and other sales are recorded 
in the handwriting of Jonathan on pages 61, 62 and 63, immediately 
following the entries of the original owner. As these sales are the 
earliest entries made by Jonathan, it is probable that the book had 
come into his possession at his father's death. 

" Near the end of the book, on pages 217 to 237, both inclusive, 
is an extract from Campanella's De Monarchia Hispanica Discursus, 
the handwriting closely resembling that of the entries on the first 
sixty pages. After the marriage of his daughter Mary to John 
Turner, Senior, the importance of a record of his family seems to 
have occurred to Jonathan Brewster ; and he took the book, turned it 
upside dovm, and began such a record on page 216, opposite the 
extract from Campanella."

1 ELDEK WILLIAM^ BEEWSTER. " Early Generations of the 
Brewster Family/' by Mrs. Lucy Hall Greenlaw of Boston, Mass., 
in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol. liii. 
pp. 109-10, contains the following summary of what is now known 
of the principal events in the life of Elder William Brewster: 

" Elder William Brewster . . . was born during the last half 
of the year 1566 or the first half of 1567. The date of his birth is 
determined by an affidavit made at Leyden, June 25, 1609, in which 
he, his wife Mary and son Jonathan declare their ages to be respec- 
tively 42, 40 and 16 years. {N. E. Register, xviii, 18-20). Bradford 
says that he was ' nere fourskore years of age (if not all out) when 
he dyed.' This statement agrees with the affidavit. The place of his 
birth is not known, but is supposed to have been Scrooby in Not- 
tinghamshire, England. His father, William Brewster, was ap- 
pointed by Archbishop Sandys, in January, 1575-76, receiver of 
Scrooby and bailiff of the manor house in that place belonging to the 
Archbishop, to have life tenure of both offices. The parish registers 
of Scrooby do not begin until 1695, and no record of Brewster's 
birth, baptism, or marriage was discovered by William Paver, a 
distinguished local antiquary, who held a commission for nearly a 
quarter of a century to report all items that he found relating to 
the Pilgrims. 

" William Brewster matriculated at Peterhouse,* Cambridge, De- 
cember 3, 1580, but it does not appear that he remained there long 
enough to take his degree. (Brown's Pilgrim Fathers of New Eng- 
land. 55). He is next found as a ' discreete and faithfull ' assistant 
of William Davison, Secretary of State to Queen Elizabeth, accom- 
panying that gentleman on his embassy to the Netherlands in Au- 
gust, 1585, and serving him at court after his return, until his 
downfall in 1587. After the retirement of Davison, Brewster 
returned to Scrooby, where he lived ' in good esteeme amongst his

grouped into the University of Cambridge." — The England and Holland 
of the Pilgrims, 256. 


freinds, and y* gentlemen of those parts, espetially the godly & 
religious/ doing much good ' in promoting and furthering Religion.' 
In 1590 he was appointed administrator of the estate of his father 
who died in the summer of that year, leaving a widow. Prudence.* 
His father was ' Post ' at Scrooby at the time of his death, and it 
is? said that the Elder's grandfather held the same office. (Arber's 
Story of the Pilgrim Fathers, 50; Brown's Pilgrim Fathers of N. E., 
54). Sir John Stanhope, who became Postmaster General in June, 
1590, appointed one Samuel Bevercotes to succeed the deceased 
Brewster. Through the influence of Davison, however, the old 
post master's son, William, was soon appointed to the office, which 
he held until September 30, 1607 (0. S.).t His residence at 
Scrooby was the old manor house. (Hunter's Founders of New 
Plymouth, 1854, 17-18; Eaine's History of the Parish of Blyth, 
129-30). In this house the members of the Pilgrim Church were 
accustomed to meet on the Lord's day, where Brewster ' with great 
loue entertained them when they came, making prouission for them 
to his great charge.' 

" The Pilgrims, attempting to remove to Holland in the latter 
part of 1607, were imprisoned at Boston through the treachery of 

* " His father's name was William and his mother's Prudence, and no 
other child of theirs was living in 1590. His father appears to have lived 
in Scrooby when this son was about five, for a William Brewster was 
assessed to the subsidy of 1571, in the township of Scrooby-cum-Ranskill, 
on goods valued at three pounds. Four or five years later, . . . this 
William Brewster, Sr., became the Archbishop of York's receiver and 
bailiff, which evidently involved residence in the manor house. We lack 
proof of his origin, and the search is especially difficult because it 
runs back of existing parish registers. Clearly there was in the neigh- 
borhood a family of his n ime, and of a station making his connection 
with it not improbable." — The England and Holland of the Pilgrims, 253-4. 

t The oflSce was then a court appointment. Brewster was styled the 
" Post " of Scrooby, and was master of the court mails. The mails 
were then only accessible to those connected with the court. Not until 
lf)44 were they thrown open to the public. See Goodwin's Pilgrim Re- 
public, 17, and Steele's Life of Brewster, 115-6. 

" Some time in or, possibly, before 1588, William Brewster, Sr., the 
archbishop's legal representative at the manor hous><>, was appointed to 
the additional office of postmaster under the Crown. . . . When 
Brewster, the father, died, in 1590, his son took his place as post. Such 
a postmaster, however, was not what the name now suggests. Letters 
then sent by post usually, if not always, were government missives, 
passed from messenger to messenger at each station ; personal corre- 
spondence, so far as it existed, being left to go by priv;^te hand." — The 
England and Holland of the Pilgrims, 237. 320. 



the master of the ship that was engaged to transport them. Brad- 
ford says that Brewster ' was y^ cheefe of those that were taken at 
Boston, and suffered y^ greatest loss; and of y^ seuen that were kept 
longst in prison, and after bound ouer to y^ assises.' Through Brad- 
ford also, we learn that Brewster, after he reached Holland, suf- 
fered many hardships* and spent most of his means in providing for 
his ' many children.' He was not so well fitted as the other Pilgrims 
for the hard labor which became their common lot, yet he bore his 
condition cheerfully. During the latter part of the twelve years 
spent in Holland, he increased his income very much by teaching and 
by the profits from a printing press which he by the help of some 
friends, set up at Leyden. At the end of that time, ' for sundrie 
weightie and solid reasons,' which are duly set forth in Bradford's 
History, among which '(and which was not least)' was a true mis- 
sionary spirit, the Church at Leyden resolved to emigrate to Virginia, 
Brewster, the Elder of the Church, who had been chosen to that 
office during the Pilgrims' stay at Leyden, was ' desired ' by thos6 
chosen to go first, ' to goe with them,' while John Robinson, the 
pastor, stayed with the majority who should follow later. Thus it 
happened that we find Elder Brewster, his wife Mary and two 
young sons among the passengers of that now famous vessel, the 
Mayflower^ which dropped anchor in Plymouth harbor, December 
16, 1620 (0. S.). At Plymouth Brewster bore an important part in 
establishing the Pilgrim republic, not shrinking from even the se- 
verest manual labor, and ' when the church had no other minister, 
he taught twise euery saboth, and y^ both powerfully and profitably, 
to y^ great contentment of y^ hearers.' 

" His wife, Mary, whose maiden name has not been discovered, 
' dyed at Plymouth in new England the 17^^ of Aprill, 1637.' (Brew- 
ster Book)* Bradford says that, though she died Mong before' 
her husband, ' yet she dyed aged,' but by her affidavit of 1609 she 
was less than sixty years of age and it is probable that her ' great & 
continuall labours, with others crosses, and sorrows, hastened it (i. e. 
old age) before y® time.' Elder Brewster survived his wife many 
years and ' dyed at Plymouth in New England the 10*'' of Aprill, 
1644.' (Breivster Booi)* . . . August 30, 1645, a final divi- 
sion of the Elder's estate was made by Bradford, Winslow, Prence, 
and Standish, between ' Jonathan and Loue his onely children 
remayneing.' " f

{The England and Holland of the Pilgrims^ 505).

* " Bradford speaks of Brewster's ' many children,' yet only six have 
been discovered. If there were others, it is probable that they died 
young. The Robert Brewster who matriculated at Leyden University, 
May 12, 1619, se. 20, may have been related to the Elder, but no evidence 
has been found that he was his son. Rev. Nathaniel Brewster, who 
was graduated at Harvard College in 1042, and later was of Brookhaven, 
L. I., was living at the time of the settlement of Elder Brewster's estate, 
when Bradford, Winslow, Prence, and Standish declare that ' William 
Brewster late of Plym gent deceased left onely two sonnes surviueing 
vizt Jonathan the Eldest and Lone the yeonger.' [See Elder William 
Brewster's Inventory, etc.] Edward Brewster, who appears in the list 
of members of the Virginia Company as ' son of William,' was probably 
the son of that William who died in Virginia in 1607. If he were a son 
of Elder William, he would have been younger than Jonathan, who is 
called ' eldest son ' and ' first borne,' and consequently too young to be 
a member of the Virginia Company and to serve as captain of Lord 
De La Warr's bodyguard in Virginia in 1610. Elizabeth, wife of Rev. 
Samuel Fuller of Middleboro', is said to have been a Brewster. She 
died November 4, 1713, ' very aged.' She was not a daughter of Jona- 
than or of Love, and she does not appear in the division of Elder Brew- 
ster's estate. If she were a daughter of Elder Brewster, the absence of 
her name in the settlement might be explained by the fact that, at that 
period, daughters were not heirs to intestate estates when there were 
sons living. It will be noticed, however, that the name of Elizabeth 
Brewster does not appear in the division of cattle, May 22, 1627 (a 
month after the death of the Elder's wife), when even the very youngest 
children were counted ; and also that Bradford states in 1650 that the 
Elder's ' daughters which came ouer after him are dead.' " — N. E. Reg., 
liii. 111.

% " There was a meaning and purpose in the adoption of names

therefore a relation to the abrogated system ; and they contributed to 
keep up the memory of it, which the Puritans wished to see die away. 
They had recourse therefore to Old Testament names, and to such words 
as fear, love and patience." — Hunter, Colls, 142. 



2 JONATHAN^ BEEWSTEE (William-'), came in the ship For- 
tune in November, 1621. He " marryed Lueretia Oldham, of Darby, 
the 10*'' Aprill. 1624." (See illustration of facsimile of pages in the 
Brewster Book.) " She was probably a sister of John Oldham, who 
came to Plymouth on his ' perticular/ about 1623, and who was 
called ' brother ' by Jonathan."* Jonathan Brewster died in Con- 
necticut, August 7, 1659, and was buried in the Brewster Ceme- 
tery at Brewster's Neck, Preston. His wife, Lueretia, died March 
4, 1678-9. 

Mr. Morton Dexter's recent publication, The England and Hol- 
land of the Pilgrims, pages 514-15, referring to an entry made in 
1610, in the Leyden (Holland) archives (Reg. van Overledenen Per- 
sonen, iii. 50), says: "On Nov. 27 there was buried in St. Peter's 
' a child of Jonathan William's son, living on the church street.' 
If we knew that Jonathan Brewster had been married, the natural 
interpretation of this entry would refer it to a death in his family, 
which lived on that street ; and if the name were Jonathan William's 
son Brewster, as it is on his admission to citizenship in 1617, it 
would be clear that he is referred to. Jonathan was not a Dutch 
name, and appears only once or twice during many years in con- 
nection with Englishmen in Leyden, and with no one else likely to 
have been referred to at this time. In view of the common Dutch 
custom of designating a man merely as his father's son, omitting the 
last name in each case, there seems no doubt that Jonathan Brewster 
is meant; although no record of his marriage ever has appeared, 
and at this time he cannot have been much over seventeen years old, 
which renders his having been married long enough to have a child 
improbable, although not impossible. On the other hand, he cer- 
tainly buried his wife on May 10, 1619. {Beg. Ov. 4, 73 vers.) 
He may have had an early attachment in England, and expediency 
and convenience may have led to marriage, even at his early age. 
Such marriages were not unknown. Dorothy May was only sixteen 
when she became Mrs. William Bradford. On the whole, therefore, 

* Goodwin's Pilgrim Republic, p. 274, in a footnote speaks of Jonathan 
Brewster calling John Oldham "brother." 



it seems quite certain that Jonathan Brewster had been married 
and that this was his child." On page 606 Mr. Dexter states that, 
while at Leyden, Jonathan lived at Pieterskerhhof , and that he was 
a ribbonmaker. 

" About 1630 Jonathan removed his family to Duxbury, from 
which place he was deputy to the General Court, Plymouth Colony, 
1639, '41, '42, '43 and '44. Thence he removed to New London, 
Conn., about 1649 (admitted inhabitant February 25, 1649-50), set- 
tling in that part later established as Norwich, his farm lying in 
both towns. Here he was deputy to the General Court of the Colony 
of Connecticut, 1650, '55, '56, '5'7 and '58. According to a letter * 
dated Sept. 1, 1656, written by Jonathaif to his sister-in-law, Sarah, 
widow of Love Brewster, he and Ifls whole family ' resolved for old 
England ' the following year. It is possible that two of his sons, 
William and Jonathan, did settle in England, but the remainder 
of the family continued here." — N. E. Reg. liii. 112. 

Winsor's History of Duxhury, Mass., p. 235, referring to Jona- 
than Brewster, says : " He was frequently the town's deputy, and one 
of the principal men in the formation of its settlement, and in the 
establishment of its church ; he sometimes practised before the Court 
as an attorney, and is also styled gentleman." 

The following are extracts from Miss Caulkins' History of New 
London, Conn., pp. 65-6, 276 : 

" Jonathan Brewster settled first in Duxbury and was several 
times representative from that place. Subsequently he engaged in 
the coasting trade, and was master and probably owner of a small 
vessel plying from Plymouth along the coast of Virginia. In this 
way he became acquainted with Pequot Harbor, and entered the 
river to trade with the natives. . . . He was ' Clarke of the 
Towne of Pequitt ' in Sept., 1649. 

" The first town t grants to Brewster were in September, '49. 
He established a trading-house with the Mogegans, at a point on 
the east side of the river opposite to their principal settlement. At 
this place, which is still called by his name, Brewster's Neck, he 
laid out for himself a large farm. The deed of the land was given 
him by Uncas, in substance as follows : 

" 'April 25, 1650. I, Unquas, Sachem of Mauhekon, doe give 
freely unto Jonathan Brewster of Pequett, a tract of land, being 

* There is a transcript of Jonathan's letter in Winsor's History of 
Duxhury, 235, and in The Mayflower Descendant, viii, 164-5. 
t New London, Conn. 


a plaine of arable land, bounded on the south side with a great 
Coave called Poccatannocke, on the north with the old Poccatuck 
path that goes to the Trading Coave, &c. For, and in con- 
sideration thereof, the said J. B. binds himself and his heirs 
to keep a house for trading goods with the Indians.' 

" (Signed by the Sachem and witnessed by William Baker 
and John Fossiker). 

" This deed was confirmed by the town, Nov. 30th, 1653, and its 
bounds determined. It comprised the whole neck on which the trad- 
ing-house stood, ' 450 acres laid out by the measurers.' Actually 
600 or 700. 

" No probate papers relating to his estate have been found, but 
bills of sale are recorded, dated in 1658, conveying all his property 
in the town plot, and his house and land at Poquetannuck, with his 
movables, cattle and swine — ' to wit -i oxen, 12 cows, 8 yearlings and 
20 swine,' to his son, Benjamin Brewster, and his son-in-law, John 
Picket. Feb. 14th, 1661-2, Mr. Picket relinquishes his interest in 
the assignment to his brother-in-law, stipulating only ' That my 
mother-in-law, Mrs. Brewster, the late wife of my father, Mr. Jona- 
than Brewster, shall have a full and competent means out of his 
estate during her life, from the said B. B. at her own dispose freely 
and fully to command at her own pleasure.' . . . 

" Mrs. Lucretia Brewster, the wife of Jonathan, was evidently a 
woman of note and respectability among her compeers. She has 
alwaj^s the prefix of honor (Mrs. or Mistress) and is usually pre- 
sented to view in some useful capacity — an attendant upon the sick 
and dying as nurse, doctress, or midwife — or a witness to wills and 
other important transactions." 

In 1637 Jonathan Brewster was a military commissioner in the 
Pequot War (Winsor's Hist. Duxbunj, p. 90; Peirce's Col. Lists 
p. 84, and Genl. Reg. Soc. Col. Wars, 1899-1902, p. 576) ; a member 
of the Duxbury Committee to raise forces in the Narragansett Alarm 
of 1642 (Winsor's Duxbury p. 90), and a member of Captain Myles 
Standish's Duxbury Company in the military enrollment of 1643. 
(Peirce's Col. Lists, p. 75, and Genl. Reg. Soc. Col. Wars, p. 576.) 

The descendants erected in the Brewster Cemetery, in 1855, a 
plain granite shaft about eight feet high, to the memory of Jona- 
than Brewster and his wife, Lucretia. A part of the inscription on 
the monument, referring to Jonathan Brewster, says : " History 
speaks of his acts," and to Lucretia Brewster there is the following: 


" A noble specimen of an enlightened, heroic Christian gentlewoman." 
The footstone that marked the grave of Jonathan Brewster is still 
in existence and it now leans against the modern monument. It 
is a small red sandstone and the inscription on it is " Mr Jona- 
than Brewster/' with a well executed figure of a harp over the letter- 
ing, the workmanship being superior to that found on gravestones 
erected several hundred years ago. It has been said that " it may 
have come from the prolific and skillful chisel of Matthew Griswold, 
the first settler of Lyme, who wrought the celebrated Lady Fenwick 
monument." The headstone that was erected at the grave of Jona- 
than Brewster, was broken into fragments and they disappeared many 
years ago. 

The Brewster Cemetery is at Brewster's Keck, between Po- 
quetanuck Cove and the Thames Eiver, in Connecticut. It con- 
tains about one square acre and is surrounded by a substantial stone 
wall, which was rebuilt in 1903, and it is now in good condition. 
Many of Jonathan Brewster's descendants are buried there.

4 FEAE2 BEEWSTEE (William^), came in the ship Ann, in 
July, 1623. She married before May 22, 1627, as second wife, ISAAC 
ALLEETON, who died at New Haven, Conn., between February 
1st and 12th, 1658-9. She died at Plymouth, December 12, 1634. 

Isaac Allerton was of the Allerton family of Suffolk, England, and 
was bom in 1585 or 1586, " as we learn from a deposition made 
September 26, 1639, in which he is described as ' Isaacke Allerton, 
of New Plimmouth in New England, Merchant, aged about 53 years.' " 
He came in the Mayflower, in 1620, accompanied by his first wife, 
Mary Norris, and children Bartholomew, Eemember, and Mary.f 

" He is named in the Leyden Eecords as being ' of London.' . . . 
He was admitted to citizenship in Leyden, February 7, 1614. He 
was one of the four signers of the letter from the Leyden Church 
to Carver and Cushman, June 1, 1620. ... He was reputed 
to have been at one time the richest man of the colony, and was 
from the outset active in its affairs. When Bradford was chosen 
governor, after Carver's death in the spring of 1621, Allerton was

tMary* Allerton (Isaac^), who m. Elder Thomas Cushman, d. Nov. 
28, 1699. (Plym. T. Bee, i. 203.) She was the last surviving passenger 
of the Mayflower. 


made assistant, or deputy governor, an office which he held alone 
until 1624, when the number of assistants was increased to five, and 
in 1633 to seven, of whom he was one. He was one of the * Un- 
dertakers ' in 1627, and ' made five voyages to England as agent 
for the colony. ... In 1632-33 he had a trading-post at Ma- 
chias, which was pillaged by the French. In 1635 his fishing station 
at Marblehead was burned.' " 

" Isaac Allerton was the only one of the Pilgram Fathers who 
became a resident of New York. . . . He was actively en- 
gaged in business in the Massachusetts colonies from 1631 until 
1637 or 1638. The Kew Amsterdam Eecords show that he was 
there in February, 1639, and he probably became a resident in the 
fall of 1638, thus being one of the first English settlers, . . . and 
from that time for twenty years Isaac Allerton played a prominent 
and honorable part in the political and business life of the Dutch 
colony. During the earlier years of his life there he was associated 
in business with Govert Loockermans, one of the leading and most 
interesting figures in the history of those times, and it is quite possible 
that he lived at Loockerman's house on the Hoogh Straet (the pres- 
ent Stone Street) when at Amsterdam, He was then a widower, 
the first known mention of his third wife, Joanna, being in 
1644. ... In April, 1647, Isaac Allerton purchased from one 
Philip de Truy the land lying between the Highway, now Pearl 
Street, and the shore line of the East Eiver, which was then west 
of the present location of Water Street. This strip, which was 
probably not more than a few feet in width, extended from the pres- 
ent location of Peck Slip southerly, nearly if not quite, to where 
Fulton Street now is. At the upper end of this property, where it 
appears to have been the widest and where a small bay or cove ran 
into the land just north of it, he increased the width by filling in 
and building a wharf, and on this he erected a large building for a 
warehouse, with a smaller one adjoining it on the west for a resi- 
dence, and from that time on until long after his death ' Allerton's 
Buildings ' were a prominent landmark in the Dutch city. . . . All 
the available evidence tends to prove that Allerton's buildings and 
wharf covered nearly the site now occupied by Nos, 6, 8, 10 and 12 
Peck Slip. 

" Although Isaac Allerton became a resident of New Haven at 
about the same time when he purchased the lands of de Truy, seats 
in the Meeting House there being assigned to him and his wife 
on March 10, 1646, and where he built himself ' a grand House 


on the Creek with four Porches,' the site of which, on the corner of 
State and Fair Streets, has been marked with a tablet and inscrip- 
tion by the New Haven Colony Historical Society, the New Amster- 
dam Eecords show that he maintained his business and residence 
there until his death, the court records showing him to have been 
present in court in July, 1658. . . . Isaac AUerton continued to 
have intimate and friendly relations with the Massachusetts colonies 
after leaving Plymouth, a large share of the trade between them and 
the Dutch passing through his hands, and he was always active in 
assisting natives of New England, or even giving his personal guar- 
antee for the purpose of avoiding quarrels between his countrymen 
and the people of New Amsterdam. 

" Great interest attaches to Isaac Allerton^s connection with Vir- 
ginia. For many years he had been trading there, carrying them 
grain, flour, and other products of the northern colonies, and bring- 
ing back the tobacco which formed almost their only crop, and in 
1650 he established a plantation for himself in what is now West- 
moreland County, upon the Machoatick Eiver, now called the 
Machodoc, a small tributary to the Potomac. 

" He was the last survivor of those who are generally counted 
the leaders of the Pilgrims. . . ." 

A tablet was erected to the memory of Isaac Allerton June 1, 
1904, at No. 8 Peck Slip, New York City, by the Society of May- 
flower Descendants in the State of New York. 

There is a transcript of Isaac Allerton's will and inventory in 
The May-flower Descendant, vol. ii. pp. 155-57.

He came to New England in 1633; was elected an assistant councillor 


Elder Brewster's family, he says : " his son Love lived till this year. 
1650. and dyed, . . ." His will is dated October 6, 1650 (0. S.). 
{Plymouth Colony Probate Rec, vol. i. folio 89.)* His widow, 
Sarah, married after September 1, 1656, Eichard Parke of Cam- 
bridge, Mass., who died there, in 1665. " The Plymouth Colony 
Records show that Sarah returned to Duxbury and was living there 
3/12 March, 1679/80," and the following entry is recorded in the 
First Book of the Plymouth First Church Eecords, part iii. p. 22, 
dated 1691, under the heading "members dyed": " mris Sarah 
Parke, widow, April 26 : in her 76th yeare." She died at Plymouth 
(Mayf. Des., ii. 115, iii. 192, iv. 128). 

Love Brewster was admitted a freeman of the Plymouth Colony 
March 2, 1635-36; early removed from Pl3anouth to Duxbury and 
" devoted himself to the cultivation of the paternal acres in Dux- 
bury, forming there with his father a family home, . . . where, 
in due time, a portion of the estate became his own and his chil- 
dren's inheritance." Elder Brewster's house was included in the 
" portion of the estate," in which house Love and his family lived. 

In 1637 Love Brewster's name appears among those who volun- 
teered to serve in the Pequot War from the Colony of New Ply- 
mouth (Winsor's Hist. Duxbury, p. 90, and Peirce's Col. Lists, p. 
84), and he was a member of Captain Myles Standish's Duxbury 
Company in the military enrollment of 1643 (Winsor's Duxbury 
93; Peirce's Col. Lists, 75, and Genl. Reg. Soc. Col. Wars, 1899- 
1902, p. 576). 

He was grand juryman from Duxbury in 1643 (Peirce's Col. Lists, 
53), and in 1645 he was one of the proprietors of the extension to 
Duxbury, afterwards known as Bridgewater (Winsor's Duxbury, 

to the Governor of Plymouth Colony, 1634, and re-elected to the same 
ofRce every year until 1666, except 1653, and was one of two commis- 
sioners appointed by the Plymouth Colony to form a confederation of 
the New England Colonies, 1643. " He appears to have been the wealth- 
iest man in Duxbury, being rated the highest on the tax list." " He was 
a distinguished early settler and a great benefactor to the Colony." 

* The date of Love Brewster's will, Octlober 6, 1650, old style, becomes 
October 16, 1650, in new style. The inventory of his estate was taken 
January 31, 1650, old style, which is equivalent to February 10, 1651, 
new style, as the legal year then did not begin until March 25. His 
death probably occurred only a few days before the taking of the in- 
ventory. See Love Brewster's Will and Inventory, which follows, and 
Mayf. Des., i. 162. (A typographical error in the last named publication 
makes the date of Love Brewster's will Oct. 11, new style, instead of 
Oct. 16). Also see notes. Old Style and New Style Dating, in this book.

" Benjamin Brewster settled upon the homstead of his father 
at Brewster's Neck, which he acquired from his father and brother-

new towns was afterwards successively included in the towns of 
Norwich, Preston, Groton, and Ledyard. He was a man of promi- 
nence, serving as deputy to the General Court of the Colony of 
Connecticut, 1668, '89, '90, '92, '93, '94, 95, '96, '97, lieutenant 
of the New London Troop, 1673, and captain of the military com- 
pany of Norwich, 1693.

PARTRIDGE, who died February 2, 1742-3. The inscription on 

* In Mr. Walter S. Allerton's communication in the Mayf. Des., vii. 174, 
referring to Isaac* Allerton's will, he says : " From the mention of a 
grandson, Allerton Newton, it is generally assumed that Isaac Allerton 
had a fourth daughter whose first name is unknown, but it is equally 
possible that he was the son of Sarah by a first husband, and this would 
account for the joint devise of lands to them." , 

t George Partridge came in the James, in 1636, on the same long, tem- 
pestuous voyage on which Rev. Ralph Partridge came. George Partridge 
was probably a son of James Partrich, of Wingham, who m. Christian 
Sims or Sams. 


his gravestone in the old cemetery at South Duxbury, Mass., says: 
" Here lyes y* body of Deacon William Brewster | who departed this 
life Nov''' y« 3"^ 1723 | aged near 78 year." 

William Brewster lived at Duxbury and was " a worthy man, who 
was often employed to good advantage in the civil affairs of the 
town." He was made a freeman in 1689. For many years he was 
a deacon of the church at Duxbury. He was an extensive land 
owner and he distributed the land by deeds " for love to his sons."

his " Scarlett cloak with the horse furniture " and requires that his 
sword be sent to England and a new blade put in, also a scab- 
bard and a false scabbard be made for his son Isaac. As Hannah 
Keene's first husband, John Bushrod, died Feb. 6, 1719, it is not

liam% Love^, William^), " of Duxborough in y^ County of Plymouth 
in y^ Province of y^ Massachusetts Bay in New England. ... for 
& in consideration of y^ love good will & affection which I have & 
do bear unto my Dutiful son Ichabod Brewster of s"* Duxborough in 
s^ Province," conveys to his son Ichabod Brewster " a Certain forty 
Acre lot of land be it more or less lying & being Contiguous to y^ 
line Between y® Towns of Duxborough & Pembroke in y^ County 
aboves*^ s^ lot is one -of y* Forty acre Lots of land which Belonged 
to y® first Division of y® Commons which Belonged to y^ Town 
of Duxborough aboves" & it is y^ second lot in number in -f 
s^ Division & was layd out Anno Domini. 1710." 

Winsor's History of Duxhurij, page 39, refers to the first division 
of the commons mentioned in this deed, as follows: 

" ' 1710, January 30: Voted, that every proprietor of a lot, with a 
dwelling thereon, if he had been a townsman ten years, should 
have 40 acres alloted to him; and those, who have had previous 
grants, to have enough more to make up the 40 acres.' . . . These 
commons (salt meadows) were divided into 33 lots of five shares 
each, and not until June 16, 1713, were they distributed by lot to 
the proprietors." William Brewster, Sen,, William Brewster, Jr., 
Benj. Brewster, Nathl. Brewster and John Brewster were among the 
165 proprietors named. 

The following is indorsed on the deed: " Eeceiv*^ Dec 17-1735

30_FoP 64— J. Cotton Reg'—" 

Elisha Brewster and Job Barstow, the witnesses, were brother

31 Deacon WEESTLING* BEEWSTER (Wrestling^ Love\ 
William'), married July 12, 1722, HANNAH, daughter of James 
and Mary (Tilden)t THOMAS, of Duxbury, Mass. She died at 
Kingston, Mass., August 20, 1788, "Aged 90 Years wanting 21 
days " (g. s.). The inscription on his gravestone at Kingston reads: 
" In Memory Of Dea'^" Wrestling Brewster | Who Dec^ Jan"^ y« 1^* 
1767 I Aged 72 year« 4 Months & 28 days." 

Deacon Wrestling Brewster lived at Pembroke, Mass., from 1722 
to 1741, when he became the owner, through an exchange with 
Ephraim Holmes (son of Lieutenant Holmes), of the homestead, now 
called "Woodside," at Kingston, which was built about 1696, by 
Major William Bradford (son of Governor William Bradford, of the 
Mayflower), for his daughter, who married Lieutenant Holmes. Dea-

t Mary* Tilden, Hannah^ Little, Ann' Warren, Richard* of the Mayflower. 


con Brewster built an addition to the little Holmes house and, when 
it passed into the possession of his son, Thomas^ Brewster, he again 
enlarged it by building a T. This homestead passed to Thomas' son 
Elisha, and it is now occupied by the family of Elisha'' Brewster. 

In 1780 a farm-hand, employed at this homestead, conceived the 
idea of attaching curved pieces of wood to the legs of a common 
high-back chair for the comfort of the invalid lady of the house — 
the widow of Deacon Wrestling Brewster. This, the first and now 
celebrated rocking-chair, is still preserved at " Woodside." 

Wrestling Brewster was a farmer and cordwainer, and he served 
for many years as a deacon of the church at Kingston. He is des- 
ignated as " Wrestling Brewster 3rd " in the marriage certificate 
and court records.

of Hanover, Mass., born at Seituate, April 23, 1717; died at Leba-

July 27, 1797, aged 87 years, and he and his wife were buried in 
Exeter Cemetery, Lebanon. 

Extracts from Lot E. Brewster's MS., written in 1845 : 

" At the time of, or soon after the marriage of Ichabod Brewster, 
he and his wife resided at Pembroke, Mass., where they continued 
until May, 1743, when they removed to Lebanon, Conn., with their 
children Bathsheba, Lydia and William. This removal was con- 
sidered an arduous undertaking and a hazardous enterprise, for 
Lebanon was then only about a day's journey from the Indian fron- 
tier of hostile tribes. The removal proved to be fortunate for 
Ichabod, as he prospered in his new location. His first purchase 
in Lebanon was a new farm with a small portion already cultivated, 
and on which a dwelling-house had been built. To this farm he

later added to his possessions by other purchases of land, not only 
in Lebanon but in the adjoining townships of Colchester and Hebron, 
until his domain became greatly enlarged. The house he and his 
family entered upon their arrival in Lebanon and in which he and 
his wife lived and died, was built several years previous to 1743; 
is a two-story frame building of nine or ten rooms; is in good 
condition, and stands fronting the East, on gently elevated ground, 
with a fine view of the meadows and cultivated fields surrounding it. 
The writer has dwelt longer upon this than may be interesting, but 
the reader may excuse him when informed that in that dwelling- 
house he drew the first breath of life and there spent the happy days 
of his childhood and youth, and this ancient homestead is endeared 
to him by the fondest recollections. 

" Ichabod Brewster sustained a character of integrity and all 
the moral virtues that should adorn the Christian man. The benevo- 
lence of his heart was exemplified in his kindness toward his parents, 
who, until about 1760, resided at the ancient home of the Brewsters 
at Duxbury, Mass. All the children of William and Hopestill (Wads- 
worth) Brewster had removed to distant parts of the country and 
they were left alone. Old age with its infirmities had advanced 
upon them and there was not a child near at hand to lean upon 
for aid, when the benevolent and filial spirit of their son Ichabod 
caused him to remove his parents to his home at Lebanon, where 
he appropriated for their use the best rooms therein and where they 
continued in comfort until their decease. This filial act ought of 
itself to cause his name and character to be held in high esteem and 
perpetually remembered by his descendants, 

" A silver table spoon is now (1845) in the possession of Lot 
Edward Brewster, which belonged to his great grandmother, Lydia 
(Eandall) Barstow. The initials of her maiden name — L. E. — are 
engraved on the handle of the spoon. It probably belonged to a 
set that was given to her by her father. Job Randall, at the time 
of her marriage as part of her dowry. The spoon came into the 
possession of her daughter, Lydia Barstow, and by her given to 
her son, Ichabod Brewster 2d, and by him given to his son. Lot 
Edward Brewster." 

Since the foregoing notes were written in 1845 there have been 
many changes. The farm does not now include the amount of land 
once owned and cultivated by Ichabod' Brewster and the house, at 
Exeter, Lebanon, is rapidly decaying, as shown in the accompanying 


illustration, which is a copy from a recent photograph. This is one 
of the oldest houses now standing in the State of Connecticut. It 
has been the home of William* Brewster and many of his descendants 
and has been owned and occupied in succession by Ichabod^ Brewster, 
Ichabod^ Brewster, William Wadsworth^ Brewster and William Wads- 
worth* Brewster. 

A table and chair, which, traditionally, were brought in the May- 
flower, in 1630, were removed from Duxbury to Lebanon, probably 
at the time of William* Brewster's removal to the home of his son 
Ichabod, and they remained in the homestead at Lebanon until

61 Captain ELISHA'^ BEEWSTEE (William*, William\ Love\ 
William^), married September 30, 1743 (Chatham, Conn., Cong. 
Chh. Rec), LUCY, daughter of Jonathan and Sibbel (Harris) 
YEOMANS of Middletown, Conn., baptized September 15, 1728 
(M. First Chh. Rec); died at Middletown, August 15, 1775, in 
the 53d year of her age (g. s.). He died at Middletown, March 26, 

Elisha Brewster removed from Duxbury, Mass., to Middletown, 
Conn., previous to 1742, and engaged extensively in mercantile busi- 
ness in the latter place. A map of Middletown, made soon after 
the Eevolutionary War, represents his residence on the west side 
of Main street, a little north of what is now Court street, and he 
is mentioned as a tavern-keeper. His name appears as one of the 
consignees of the cargo on the brig Polly from the West Indies and 
bound for Middletown, which was captured by a British war vessel 
in September, 1775, and taken to Boston as a prize. He was made 
assistant commissioner December 17, 1776. It has not been ascer- 
tained that Captain Elisha Brewster had any command in the Eevo- 
lutionary War, but he may have been a captain of a local train band 
and received the appointment from the Colonial Legislature, which 
was quite an honor in those days.

62 WILLIAM" BREWSTER (Benjamin*, William^ Love-, Wil- 
liam^), married first, at Preston, Conn., March 34, 1737, DAMARIS, 
daughter of Joseph and Damaris (Rose) GATES of Norwich, Conn,, 
born there, December 18, 1718; died at Canterbury, Conn., Sep- 
tember 7, 1751; married second, at Canterbury, January 16, 1753, 
ESTHER, daughter of Dr. John and Esther (Deming) SABIN" of 
Franklin, Conn., born at Pomfret, Conn,, April 7, 1738; died at 
Plainfield, Conn., February 7, 1787. "Died at Middlebury, Vt,, 
Mr. William Brewster, aged 88, formerly of this town." — Windham, 
Conn., Herald, Nov. 13, 1801. 

William Brewster removed from Preston to Canterbury after the 
birth of his first child and lived there until after his second mar- 
riage, which is recorded at Canterbury. He joined the church there 
in 1751. He owned land in Preston, which he sold to his father 
a few years after going to Canterbury. (See Preston Deeds, v. 349). 
In 1753 he bought land in Windham and moved there that year. 
From 1753 to 1786 there are many records of land transactions by 
William Brewster, and from these records it appears that he lost 
his property during the Revolutionary War. He was probably a 
farmer, evidently energetic and successful until long after middle 
life. He was an administrator of his father's estate. It is a tradi- 
tion that after his second wife's death he lived with his daughters, 
Mrs. Ely and Mrs. Stebbins, at West Springfield, Mass., and he died 
while visiting in Vermont.

as " late of Coventry " ; that two of his children of his first wife, " Mary," 
were born at Coventry {Lebation T. Rec, 295) ; that a child was named 
" Peter Brewster Strong " ; that the death of " Mrs. Mary Strong, his 
Wife," is recorded at Lebanon ; that later Jonathan Strong and his fam- 
ily removed from Lebanon to "a distance" (New York State), and many 
years previous to the death of Peter" Bi-ewster ; that the said Peter 
Brewster's will mentions his daughter Mary as deceased and that she 
had children who survived her (see p. 77), and that in the distribution 
of Peter Brewster's estate (recorded in Hebron District, iii. 16), there 
are these entries : " The children of said Mary being at a distance and their 
number and home unknown to us we cannot make the subdivision among 
them at this time if ever " and " Set out to the Heirs of Mary Strong

They lived at Coventry, where Elijah Carpenter was a farmer. 
He served in the Eevolutionary War as captain in the 2d Eegiment 
of Connecticut. 

Money. . . . The Situation of these Heirs is such that we are not 
able to make the Subdivision amongst them but find according to the will 
and your Honour's order to be the sum of Twenty one Dollars and we 
have set it out among all the Heirs of the said Mary Deceased," place 
the first wife of Jonathan Strong as the daughter of Peter' Brewster 
of Coventry. 

The statement that Jonathan Strong's first wife, Mary, was a daughter 
of Samuel" Brewster (brother of said Peter), of Lebanon, Conn., is an 
error, as the Windham Probate Records, vi, 56, in 1798, refer to Samuel's 
daughter as " Miss Mary Brewster late of Lebanon deed." See p. 75. 

In addition to the researches of the compiler of this book she was 
kindly assisted by Mrs. Lucy Hall Greenlaw of Boston, Mass., Mrs. 
Charles C. Welch of Denver, Colo., and Mr. Frank Allaben of New York 
City, in securing these records.

Settlement." The cemetery there, in which he and his wife rest, 
was presented by him to the community. 

His son Ephraim narrated the following story regarding him. 
In early youth, upon a Sabbath afternoon, Timothy Brewster and 
a few ungodly friends were in an old sugar-house engaged in play- 
ing cards, when suddenly the pasteboards disappeared and the most 
careful search failed to find them. This was thought to be the work 
of the devil and the young men were seized with consternation, re- 
nounced their sinful lives and became good Christians, and Timothy 
Brewster was eventually led to enter the ministry of the Blessed 

He was a selectman of Pawlet in 1812-13, and served two short 
terms as a private in the Eevolutionary War. 

Timothy Brewster owned a dictionary which, traditionally, had 
belonged to his ancestors, William^ Brewster and Nathaniel* Brew- 
ster, and prohahly William^ Brewster and Love^ Brewster. See Love 
Brewster's Inventory, p. 30, which includes three dictionaries. 

The accompanying illustration is a facsimile of a page (the title 
page has been lost), and the lining of cover of the book. The latter 
has the autographs of four persons named William Brewster and 
those of Nathaniel Brewster, Timothy Brewster and A. J. (W. A.

William Brewster, almost obliterated. The book is 8 inches high, 
5 inches wide and 2| inches thick. The earliest date printed in it 
is A. c. 782 and the latest is a. c. 1591. 

This dictionary was owned by Timothy Brewster's descendants in 
a direct line, as follows : William^ Brewster, William Andrew Jack- 
son^ Brewster and it is now the property of Morris William® Brewster 
of Milan, Washington, by virtue of his father's will. Mr. Brewster 
will be pleased to learn if there is proof that this book originally 
belonged to Love^ Brewster, also who was the William Brewster 
whose autograph is marked (1).

Wetmore of Middletown, born there, May 34, 1753, and died there, 
December 1, 1798. She died July 5, 1837. 

They lived in the Wetmore homestead at Middletown, which was 
built by Oliver Wetmore's father in 1746. The " North Parlor " 
stands as it was built — the same heavy beams are overhead in the 
large, low room, the same tiny panes of window glass are used, the 
curious inside shutters or blinds, the deep window seats, the buffet 
in the corner beside the huge stone chimney, and the high mantel, 
over which is painted on the wall a landscape, said to have been 
the handiwork of a traveling artist at the time the house was built. 
Doubtless, it was there that Sarah Brewster was welcomed when she 
came as a bride into the Wetmore family. Many have come and 
gone until the fifth generation of Sarah Brewster's descendants have 
been sheltered under this hospitable roof, and may the fine old man- 
sion on the hill-side continue long to make a home for worthy 

Oliver Wetmore " was a man of superior talents, intellectual at- 
tainments, sound judgment, very dignified, yet accessible to all, and 
unbounded benevolence was a prevailing trait." He was made deacon 
of the First Congregational Society of Middletown, March 4, 1784, 
and held the office until death. His wife, Sarah Brewster, " possessed 
much of the generous high mindedness of her noble ancestor."

as deacon of the church in that town. 

" At the commencement of the Eevolutionary War he was enrolled 
as one of the ' Minute Men ' of his country in the capacity of a

' rebel.' ... He was twice taken prisoner at sea by the British, 
and for a considerable time was detained on board one of the notorious

Eesidence, Danbury. Lyman D. Brewster was fitted for 
college at Williams Academy, Stockbridge, Mass.; entered 
Yale University in 1851 and was graduated in 1855, being 
the poet of his class. Ke traveled extensively abroad and 
upon his return studied law under the direction of Eoger 
Averill of Danbury (who afterward became Lieutenant 
Governor of Connecticut), and was admitted to the bar in 
1858. " Mr. Brewster early attained prominence at the 
bar. In 1868 he was judge of Probate and in 1870 the first 
judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Fairfield County, 
serving four years. In 1870, 1878 and 1879 he represented 
Danbury in the lower house of the State Legislature, serv- 
ing two years on the judiciary committee, also as chairman 
of the committee on constitutional amendments, and as a 
member of the committee on a reformed civil procedure, 
whose work resulted in the drafting and adoption of the 
present Practice Act. In 1880 and 1881 he was a member 
of the State Senate and chairman of the judiciary com- 
mittee. He confined himself closely to the practice of his 
profession after 1880, and became very successful as a trial 
lawyer. His most important case was the suit involving 
the will of Samuel J. Tilden of New York. Appearing 
for the heirs-at-law, he attacked the validity of the residuary 
bequest creating the ' Tilden Trust.' The Court of Appeals 
of New York, by a bare majority, held the bequest invalid, 
the prevailing opinion indicating that the conclusion of the 
court was based largely on Judge Brewster's brief, in the 
preparation of which the best part of four years was spent. 
Joseph H. Choate [ex-Ambassador to England] was asso- 
ciated with him in this case. . . . Judge Brewster was 
a charter member of the American Bar Association and 




until his illness in 1903 had attended all of its meetings. 
Since 1890 he had been chairman of the committee of the 
Association on Uniform State Laws, from 1896 to 1901 
was president of the National Conference of Commissioners, 
on Uniformity of State Legislation, appointed by the Gov- 
ernors of the various States. He particularly gave up the 
last years of his life to this movement, and contributed 
more than any other one man to its success. In 1901 he 
wrote a series of exhaustive articles for the Yale Law 
Journal and Harvard Law Review, in defense of the Nego- 
tiable Instruments Act, which had been subjected to the 
criticism of Dean Ames of the Harvard Law School. He 
was an earnest advocate of reform in the business laws of 
the country, and gave forcible expression to his views in a 
paper on ' A Commercial Code,' which he read before the 
New York State Bar Association at Albany, in January, 

There was one passage in the paper that summed up his 
ideas of law reform so concisely that it is given here: 

" It would be a bitter reproach to our profession if the 
bar as a body failed to do their duty in this matter, failed 
to do their share in making the law of the land intelligible 
to the common people. Our Divine Master pronounced a 
woe on the law^^ers of his time, not because they were 
lawyers. Far from it — Moses was the greatest of lawyers. 
Law-givers and codifiers and the prophets delighted in 
the law. His censure, with divine penetration to the heart 
of things, was that the lawyers laid burdens on men 
grievous to be borne, which they would not themselves touch 
with one of their fingers, and the weight of that burden," 
he added, " was that while building the tombs of the 
prophets their fathers had slain, they took away the key 
of knowledge. Far be it from the lawyers of a Christian 
civilization, favored more than those of any other country, 
living among people where every man is a voter and a 
possible law-maker, to be guilty of taking away or hiding 
the key of knowledge from such a free people." 

" Immediately after reading this paper, which he had 
said would probably finish his work in behalf of uniformit}'. 
he was stricken with paralysis. 


" A loving Christian character shone all through his 
life, and during his last year of rest and freedom from 
activity his life became a benediction to all who came in 
touch with him. He died in sleep at his home in Danbury. 

" His short poems published at different times during 
his lifetime show a true sense of humor and a great depth 
of character. His poem ' Immortality ' was said to be his 
favorite and was a representation of the true character of 
the man." 

Judge Brewster had long been identified with the Danbury 
Eelief Society, the Danbury Library, the Danbury Hospital 
and other benevolent institutions, and for many years held 
the office of school visitor. He was the governor of the Con- 
necticut Society of Mayflower Descendants from 1900 to 
1903 and was an assistant governor general of the General 
Society of Mayflower Descendants. 

During six years' correspondence with the compiler, 
Judge Brewster repeatedly expressed his deep interest in 
her Brewster Genealogy and rendered valuable assistance. 

He had no issue.

Elisha Brewster served in the Eevolutionary War ; " early en- 
listed in a regiment of Light Dragoons, for and during the war and 
served to its close as an officer. After its close he served as captain 
of cavalry and brigade quartermaster. At the time of Shaj-^s In- 
surrection he volunteered his services to Genl. Shepard, at Spring- 
field, and was appointed one of his aids on that memorable occasion. 
Subsequently he was employed ])y the Government to take the oath 
of the insurgents for their allegiance to the Commonwealth. While 
in the army he experienced many hard fought battles, always charg- 
ing into the very midst of the contest with an impetuosity and 
courage which no prudence could restrain. He was a fine looking 
officer, and in daring and horsemanship no one excelled him in the 
army. As a civilian he retained that dignity and courtesy which so 
often mark the officers of the army, and always bore with him, in 
the intercourse with his fellow-men, that affability and gentlemanly 
feeling which so eminently characterized his younger brother, Mr. 
Jonah Brewster. He held various offices of trust in the town and 
was chosen to represent its interests in the General Court in 1806,"

" Soon after Jonathan Brewster's age had entitled him to take 
a practical part in the business of the town he was chosen to fill the 
most important offices in its gift. Having a good command of 
language and being a sound reasoner he was often appointed by the 
town to advocate its cause in differences with other towns. Before 
the Board of County Commissioners he presented the interests of 
the town seldom without success. In town meetings, as chairman, 
he presided with confidence and dignity; as a public speaker, though 
impulsive and sometimes passionate, he was never listened to with- 
out attention and respect. At seven different times he represented 
the town in the General Court, where he was respected for his ability 
and often honored by being appointed as chairman upon important 
committees. He belonged to the Board of Selectmen a number of 
years and held important town trusts till near the time of his 
death. He was firm and unchangeable and of strong prejudices and 
when once he had examined a subject and taken his position in 
regard to it no motives could influence, no arguments persuade him 
to relinquish it. He was loved by the poor for his kindness and 
respected by the rich for his integrity."

British and confined on the notorious prison ship Jersey * at the 
Wallabout on Long Island in the winter of 1779-80, and suffered 
indescribable horrors. When a ship, on which he was a captive, was 
burning he assisted in removing sick prisoners, and while in the 
hold searching for others every man and boat left and he was forced 
to escape on a cake of floating ice. The Tories soon picked him up 
and drove him back to the vessel with blows from their boat-hooks, 
declaring they would " burn the rebel," and they never knew that 
they had failed. The ship was now in full blaze, but on the oppositt

prison ship till the close of the war, when she was left to decay on the 
spot where her victims had suffered. . . . The large number confined

her history a synonym for prison ships during the war." — Lossing's Field

262 General and President ZACHARY^ TAYLOR (Richard^ Tay-

July 9, 1850, and was buried near Louisville, Ky. 

" In 1808 Zachary Taylor was appointed a lieutenant of infantry 
and in 1810 promoted to captain. In 1812 he was appointed to the 
command of Fort Harrison, near the present city of Terre Haute, 
Ind., which he defended with his troops from the attack of a large 
force of Indians, for which he was breve tted major. He served 
in the Black Hawk War of 1832, and in 1837 was given full com- 
mand in Florida, where he defeated the Indians in the battle of 
Okechobee, thereby putting an end to the Indian War. In 1840 he 
was given command in the Southwest. ^^Hien Texas was annexed 
he marched to Corpus Christi. In 1846 he was ordered to the Rio 
Grande, the Mexican invasion having been already planned. He estab- 
lished a camp opposite Matamoras. The Mexicans claimed that the 
ISTueces was the actual Texas boundary, and the Mexican commander 
ordered Taylor to withdraw. Acting under orders from his govern- 
ment, he refused. Fearing his base of supplies at Point Isabel would 
be cut off, Taylor marched for that place. On the way he was at- 
tacked, and won the two victories of Palo Alto and Resaca de la 
Palma, on two successive days. Having been ordered to send his 
best troops to reinforce General Scott, he won the victory of Buena 
Vista, nevertheless, in 1847, with a force much inferior to the 

This victory created the greatest enthusiasm, and General Taylor, 
popularly called " Old Eough and Ready," was nominated in 1848, 
by the Whig party for the presidency, and triumphantly elected the 
twelfth President of the United States. He was inaugurated March 
4, 1849, and died sixteen months later.

Peru), Mass., May 27, 1781, JERUSHA, daughter of Henry * and 
Mary (Langdon) BADGER of Partridgefield, born there, September 
9, 1759; died at Lenox, Mass., November 21, 1841. He died at 
Becket, Mass., February 15, 1812. 

Oliver Brewster was the first physician of Becket. He was a 
surgeon in the Revolutionary War in a regiment from Berkshire, and 
was at Stone Arabia, N. Y., under Colonel John Brown of Pittsfield, 
Mass., in 1780. 

" His labors in his profession were indefatigably faithful and 
successful. In most instances, particularly in acute diseases, his 
practice was eminently successful. Beneficence was a well known 
trait in his character. This was experienced by his patients to whom, 
when poor, he was not only a physician but a father, relieving their 
wants to the extent of his ability. His professional charges were 
remarkably moderate and his collection of them from persons of 
humble means — if collected at all— was in the most favorable way 
possible. His worldly prosperity was due to his industry and econ- 
omy of time. Decision and determination were indeed character- 
istics of the man. In his family his fidelity as a Christian father 
was remarkable and exemplary. He stood as a pillar in the church, 
in which he was deacon." 

The accompanying illustration was the home of Dr. Oliver Brew- 
ster at Becket, probably built by him, and in 1787, as that year is 
marked on the chimney. It is said to have been the finest house 
in Becket in its day. It is still standing and in good condition.

where he lived until his decease. " During most of that time he 
held a public ofiice, as town clerk, justice of the peace, supervisor, 
county treasurer, county judge and member of the Assembly. All 
of these ofiices he filled with ability, honesty and integrity. He was 
an easy and gifted public speaker and could present his thoughts 
with so much clearness, logic and pathos as to carry an audience 
to the same concluding point where he arrived. . . . He united 
with the First Presbyterian Church of Mexico in 1832 and soon after 
was chosen a ruling elder, which office he held until death, per- 
forming his duties in a faithful and satisfactory manner. . . . 
He was a judicious, examplary and useful Christian man."

posures incident to a pioneer physician's life in swamps and forests 
he continued in the practice of his professional duties with unusual 
activity during a period of fifty-three years and until within a few 
months of his death. Of a retiring disposition he shrank from that 
prominence in public life to which he might easily have risen, pre- 
ferring the quiet and unostentatious practice of the profession he 
loved and adorned. Still he was widely known and highly appre- 
ciated, not merely for his professional character but also for those 
qualities of mind and heart which endeared him to his intimate

Ohio, June 21, 1849, and was buried there. 

* Bernard Hubley, Jr., was son of Bernard Hubley. Sr.. the latter b. in 
Germany, Oct. 18, 1719, and came to this country in 1732 with his father, 
a French Huguenot, whose family then consisted of two sons, Bernard. 
Sr., and Michael, and a daughter, and settled at Lancaster, Pa. The 
name Hubley was formerly spelled " Oublie." 

Bernard Hubley, Jr., was b. at Lancaster, July 8, 1754; d. at Phila- 
delphia, Pa.. March. 1810; m. at Northumberland. Pa., June 28. 1790, 
Elizabeth, dau. of John and Tamer (Rich) McCalla. she b. at Doylestown,

which office he held for many years. He was a member of the Pennsyl-

Lot E. Brewster was born in the old homestead at Lebanon, Conn., 
and lived there until manhood. He derived his first name from 
his grandfather's brother, Dr. Lot Brewster, and was baptized '' Lot 
Edward " at Christ Episcopal Church, Hartford, Conn., May 7, 1813. 
There is a tradition that he attended a New England college, but it 
is possible that he was a pupil at Bacon Academy, Colchester, Conn., 
and later continued his studies. He was a scholarly man and spoke 
the French language fluently. After teaching school for a short 
time in the vicinity of Lebanon he was employed by his brother-in- 
law, Nathan Morgan, a prominent merchant at Hartford, who was 
engaged in the West India trade, and he remained with him for 
several years. Previous to his marriage Mr. Brewster removed to 
Brooklyn, N. Y., where he was a merchant until 1831, when he 
with his wife and two children removed to Cincinnati, and was a 
merchant there for many years. " Shortly after becoming a resident 
he was identified with the interests of Cincinnati, and was highly 
respected as an upright and useful citizen and an enterprising and 
efficient business man. For many years he was a member of the 
City Council and presided over that body [an honor in those days], 
and the city is largely indebted to the measures he organized and 
to the indefatigable and earnest spirit and energy with which he 
habitually discharged his duties." 

Mr. Brewster was one of the founders and the senior warden 
of Grace Episcopal Church at Cincinnati. The meeting for its 
organization and many of the services, previous to the erection of 
the church edifice,* were held at his residence. 

In 1845 Mr. Brewster was elected a member of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society at Boston, Mass. He was a charter 
member of the New England Society of Cincinnati, " an institution 
to which he, from its organization, devoted much of his zeal," and 
served in various offices, being president at his decease. 

" Lot E. Brewster was recognized as a worthy representative of his 
noble and illustrious ancestor. Elder William Brewster." It was his 
manuscript which led his granddaughter to compile this Brewster 
Genealogy. See Preface.

same coll., delivering the master's oration, 1854; same 
degree was conferred upon him by Yale Coll., 1879, and 
ten years later Trinity Coll. made him a Doctor of 
Laws. He was admitted to the bar in 1855, and in 


April of same year was called to the position of li- 
brarian of the State of Connecticut, which he held until 
his decease. His life work was done as State librarian 
or in historical and legal studies connected with his 
duties there, and in that capacity he served the State 
for forty-five years, a longer time than any other oflBcial 
of either the Colony or the State of Connecticut with the 
exception of George Wyllys, who was the secretary of 
the Colony and the State from 1734 to 1794. While 
in his charge the State Library was made one of the 
best collections of Law Eeports and Statute Law in the 
land. He edited the New Haven Colony Records, 1638- 
1665, and the Connecticut Colonial Records. The value 
of these publications, sixteen large octavo volumes, is 
beyond calculation, and the work has been so carefully 
done that it is hardly possible that any part of it will 
need to be done again. Some of his other publications 
are Goodwin s Genealogical Notes, edited in 1856, An- 
nals of Christ Church, Hartford, to 1828, and communi- 
cations addressed to the Courant and other journals. 
The results of a large part of his investigations remain 
unpublished." He was a member of many historical

371 EEBECCA^ BREWSTER {Simon\ Simo7i', Benjamin^ 
William^, Love^, William'^), married at Preston, Conn., September 
18, 1814, Deacon JOHN HUMPHREY, son of James and Jean 
(Fisher) Humphrey of Londonderry (now Derry), N". H., born there, 
January 12, 1786, and died there, April 14, 1867. She died at 
Derry, November 12, 1871, aged 92 years. 

In 1815 John Humphrey purchased a farm along " The West 
Running Brook " in Derry (which is a portion of the larger tract 
called Londonderry), at the spot where, in 1719, the sixteen Scotch- 
Irish pioneers spent the first winter in a " common house " and 
planted a " common field " and then brought their families from 
Newburyport, Mass. In 1818 he was chosen ruling elder in the First 
Church of Derry and for more than fifty years he fulfilled the duties 
of the office, a part of which time he was also Sabbath-school super- 
intendent. He was a joiner and housebuilder by trade, and his 
education was obtained at the schools in Derry and by his own 
exertions. He was a great lover of books, always keeping in touch 
with the standard works of the day, and enjoyed the reading of 
physics, theological works and especially the Bible. He was a devoted 
and exemplary Christian, and Sabbath desecrations and neglect of 
the sanctuary he regarded as heinous sins. He was a man of great 
weight of character, of perfect self command and of imposing pres- 
ence, being over six feet in height. Because of his sound practical 
judgment his opinion was repeatedly sought for deciding many im- 
portant questions, and he was always accessible to the unfortunate, 
giving his time and personal help. 

Rebecca Brewster possessed great vitality, and of a nervous tem- 
perament her life was one of high tension. Her sprightly sayings 
and strong, sensible views of life gave her prominence in the com- 
munity. The household furnishing was largely the product of her 
own spinning and weaving for " she sought wool and flax and worked 
willingly with her hands, looking well to the ways of her household 
and eating not the bread of idleness." Married at thirty-five, within 
six years four sons were born, two of whom she outfitted for college 


and theological seminary. With scarce any outside help, she carried 
on her household affairs to the age of ninety-two, and she led a class 
of ladies in the Sabbath-school until she was eighty-five years of age.

" It is an interesting fact, . . . that when Napoleon, after his 
overthrow at Waterloo, thought of flying to this country, friends of 
his sought and were pledged the aid of Captain Hillard, then in 
France, in carrying out the design. It was fully arranged between 
him and them that the emperor should be concealed in a water cask 
on his vessel's deck and so escape through the English fleet, but 
for some reason he was not conveyed on board,"

381 Honorable JAMES^ BREWSTER (Joseph^ Simon^, Benja- 
min*, William^, Love-, William^), married at New Haven, Conn., 
September 18, 1810, MARY HEQUEMBOURG of New Haven, 
whose father was a French Revolutionary soldier. She died at New 
Haven, in 1867. He died at New Haven, November 22, 1866, and 
he and his wife were buried there. 

Soon after the death of his father James Brewster apprenticed 
himself as a mechanic, and by his skill and high principle won the 
esteem of his employer. In 1809 Mr. Brewster started for New York 
to seek his fortune, but, while passing through New Haven, he 
strolled into a carriage shop, accepted an engagement which was 
offered him and thus, by an apparent accident, began a career which, 
for more than a half century was identified with the progress of 
the Elm City. He became, as was said at his death, " the pioneer 
of the carriage business." 

Although Mr. Brewster had no schooling in his youth, save that 
of a common school, he was always deeply interested in educational 
matters. He founded the Mechanics' Institute of New Haven, pro- 
viding for courses of popular lectures on science, etc., by Professor 
Benjamin Silliman and others of the faculty of Yale College. Thus 


he anticipated the principles of modern " University Extension." 
He also purchased and presented to Yale College a Mineralogical 
Cabinet; built and endowed the New Haven Orphan Asylum, at 
a cost of over $20,000, and, moreover, he made himself the personal 
friend of all the children in the institution. AVhen the Civil War 
broke out he was an ardent supporter of the Union and fitted out, 
at his own expense, a company of volunteers. Mr. Brewster furnished 
most of the funds for publishing the book Chief of the Pilgrims, or 
Life and Time of William Brewster. He was one of the first direc- 
tors of the New Haven and Hartford Eailroad Company and for its 
success he risked nearly his entire fortune. He served one term as 
mayor of New Haven. 

During the hours of the funeral services of Mr. Brewster places 
of business were closed by common consent and citizens displayed 
their flags at half-mast. The New Haven Palladium of November 
26, 1866, at the close of a long article upon his funeral obsequies, 
says : " Thus has gone to rest one of the best citizens New Haven 
or any other city ever had. ' He, being dead, yet speaketh, his deeds 
do follow him.' Hundreds about our city called him blessed, and 
a hundred households are happier and better to-day for his having 
lived. The public blessings, which he was instrumental in obtaining, 
are lasting mementos to his worth — ^more enduring than tablets of 
stone or graven memorials of ever-during brass."

Dows. Res. New York City and Cazenovia. In 1849 Mr. 
Brewster went to California, where he engaged in mer- 
cantile and other western enterprises for twenty-five years, 
and amassed a fortune. In 1874 he returned East to reside 


permanently, making his home in New York City. Some 
of the greatest financial movements were more or less the 
work of his genius. He was prominently identified with 
the building of the elevated railways of New York City 
and was also a leader in many large railroad transactions, 
one of the most important being the reorganization of the 
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha railroads. At 
the time of his death he was vice president of the Chicago, 
Eock Island and Pacific Eailway Company and a heavy 
stockholder and director in the Chicago and Eastern Illinois 
Eailway Company, the Delaware and Hudson Canal Com- 
pany and other large enterprises. He was also a director 
in the International Navigation Company — owner of the 
American line of steamers. He was a member of the Metro- 
politan, Union League and Eiding Clubs, the New England 
Society, American Museum of Natural History and of the 
American Geographical Society. Mr. Brewster inherited 
many of the noblest traits of his ancestors and he illus- 
trated by precept and example the virtues which have char- 
acterized the best of the New England race, viz., integrity, 
perseverance, benevolence, deep religious feeling, courage 
of convictions, and love of letters, art and nature. In 
1891 he erected a handsome summer residence at the foot 
of Cazenovia Lake, N. Y., and named it " Scrooby," in 
honor of the ancestral English manor house of Elder Wil- 
liam Brewster. Chn., 4, 7 b. at Cazenovia, 5 New York, 6

415 OLIVE^ HOLMES (Thomas'' Holmes, Joseph^ Holmes, 
Mary^ Brewster, Wrestling^, Love-, William^), married at Kingston, 
Mass., March 27, 1822, URIAH^ BARTLETT, Jr., son of Uriah" * 
and Susanna ( Cooke) f Bartlett of Kingston, born there, July 23, 
1789 ; died at Buffalo, N. Y., August 2, 1883. She died at Kings- 
ton, June 21, 1850. 

In early days Uriah Bartlett, Jr., owned and sailed, with his 
brother, Peleg Bartlett, a vessel called the Harmony. He was the 
only one of his father's twelve children who resided in his native 
town, Kingston. Here he lived until ninety-two years of age, when 
failing strength induced him to make his home with his son, Dr. 
Frederic W. Bartlett, at Buffalo, N. Y., at whose home he died, in 
his ninety-fifth year. 

Mr. Bartlett was the authority for the whole town of Kingston 
on matters occurring during nearly a century, and the information 
procured from him in practically every instance is verified by the 
records. As a boy he had talked with the venerable Ebenezer Cobb 
of that town, who was born in 1694 and died in 1801, aged one 
hundred and seven years and eight months, and who told him that 
in his own boyhood he had known Peregrine Wliite, who was born 
on the Mayflower, in 1620, and died in 1704. 

The grave of Mr. Bartlett is decorated on Memorial Day by the 
G. A. E. Post at Kingston, as he was one of the military guard at 
the Gurnet in Plymouth Harbor in the War of 1812, when the 
Atlantic coast was blockaded by the British. In February, 1813, 
he was returning from the South on a merchantship which, with 
four other vessels, was captured by the British, but the prisoners 
were given one vessel and released.
